Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Policy-making at the European Union (EU) level is complex given the institutional polyphony that characterises its multifaceted multi-level decision-making processes. Social/economic strife (Austherity, Brexit, Migration, Trade agreements etc.), an environment of heightened Euroscepticism across the EU, as well as the spread of populist politics and rise of illiberal democracies have affected the type of solutions offered, which range from more supranational action to rejection of EU and a retreat to national sovereignty.
This course will engage with the above and completion of the seminar will enable students to have a deeper understanding of the functions of the EU’s institutions/actors and the processes involved in EU policy/decision-making.

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Summary of the course contents:
Policy-making at the European Union (EU) level is complex given the institutional polyphony that characterises its multifaceted multi-level decision-making processes. All of the EU member states (EUMS) through the EU’s intergovernmental institutions (i.e. European Council, Council) as well as its supranational institutions (e.g. European Commission, European Parliament, etc.) play a crucial role. Specific policies (e.g. monetary policy) are decided in specialised institutions such as the European Central Bank. Non-states actors, interest groups and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) try also to shape policy decision.
Social/economic strife (Euro/debt crises, illegal immigration, Brexit, etc.), an environment of heightened Euroscepticism across the EU as well as the spread of populist politics and rise of illiberal democracies have affected the type of solutions offered, which range from more supranational action to rejection of EU and a retreat to national sovereignty.
This course will engage with the above and completion of the seminar will enable students to have a deeper understanding of the functions of the EU’s institutions/actors and the processes involved in EU policy/decision-making.

Objective of the course:
The aim of the course is twofold: a) to enable students gain in-depth understanding of the decision-making processes and actors involved in policy-making at the EU level; b) advance students' ability to produce spoken and written analyses in accordance with good academic practices.

Learning outcomes:
• Detailed understanding about processes and actors involved in policy-making at the EU level
• Class is designed to develop students’ analytical/critical thinking and presentation techniques. Research work and essay writing target the improvement of students’ research and academic writing skills. Hence, students will be able to:
o Independently produce spoken and written analyses in accordance with good academic practices,
o Practice on raising good analytical questions relevant to topics provided,
o Plan and present own research, and
o Critically analyse and think conceptually about the processes and actors involved in policy-making at EU level by using reasoned/well-informed arguments.
