About the Course

The course addresses the problems of integrating different national market systems into one single market. The interplay between formal legal restrictions, economical functions of the single market and the political policy-making process, as well as their consequences, will be central themes throughout this course. The aim is to provide a thorough understanding of the complex process of the creation of a single internal market within the European Union. The internal market’s consequences for the spatial pattern of manufacturing and services, trade, labour, capital flows and infrastructural development in Europe and its neighbouring countries will be analysed,  as well as broader societal consequences. The relation between regional, national and supranational policies and decisions is extensively investigated in the course, with special focus on a number of relevant areas of common policy, as well as policy areas subject to common legislation within the ‘acquis communautaire’, framework. The course is based on thematic lectures, seminars and student’s presentations.
