Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Crises are nothing new to the European integration process. Each decade has had its own fair share of crises that have contributed to the flexibility/complexity of the Union we have today. For the most part of the last decade, the European Union (EU) has been hit by a wave of different, interconnected and at times mutually reinforcing crises. Solutions offered range from more supranational action to a retreat to national sovereignty.
Three levels will be highlighted: EU institutions, its member states as well as selected key EU policies. Completion of the seminar will enable students to have a broader understanding of the EU as well as the challenges it currently faces.
Objective of the course:
The aim of the course is twofold: a) to enable students gain in-depth understanding of the effects the crises had/have on the conceptualisation of the European integration process, the inter-relationship among EU member states as well as on key EU policies; b) advance students' ability to produce spoken and written analyses by critically engaging with and applying relevant theoretical/methodological approaches.
Learning outcomes:
• Detailed understanding about issues affecting the European integration process
• Recognition of the specific causes and effects of various current EU crises
• Awareness about the way in which the regional and domestic implications of the concerned issues impact upon each other
• In –depth knowledge of as well as critically apply the theoretical and methodological approaches related to the study
• Class is designed to develop students’ analytical thinking and presentation techniques.
• Research work and essay writing target the improvement of students’ research and academic writing skills, consequently students will be able to:
o Independently produce spoken and written analyses in accordance with good academic practices,
o Practice on raising analytical questions concerning provided topics,
o Plan and present own research, and
o Critically analyse and think conceptually about the EU in crisis debate by using reasoned/well-informed arguments.
