About the Course

This course lays the theoretical foundation for a broad interdisciplinary and problem- oriented approach to European integration. The aim is to increase the theoretical understanding of legal, political, economic and social aspects of the European integration process by bringing forward different disciplinary insights and understandings of current European phenomena. The students will learn about the institutions, processes, practices and problems of European integration as well as gain an overview of, and an ability to critically reflect on and discuss, orally and in written form, current theory and research on processes of European integration. The course is based on thematic lectures, seminars and students’ presentations. During the course representatives from different academic disciplines with different approaches to European integration will participate, which gives the course a multidisciplinary character and provides students with insights into the theoretical and practical experiences of different fields within European studies.
