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 student’s presentations.
