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.
