You will study Europe in a broad sense that encompasses various international organizations, state actors and civil society. The course assesses both what impact European integration has had internationally, and how Europe is affected by global developments.
part of the course investigates Europe in the world from a system level. You
will focus on global governance, the EU as a global actor and power shifts in

systems. Among others, you will be working with issues regarding security and
the security strategies of European states and institutions; the European
financial crisis and the changing
presence of Europe in the global political economy; and the impact of international
migration on European societies and states.
