European Market Integration
The course addresses the challenges of integrating different national market systems into one single market, without formally integrating the respective social systems. The main problems related to the processes of enlargement and integration – the widening and deepening of European cooperation – will be outlined and analysed. Various examples of how to best understand and deal with these challenges will be addressed. The interplay between formal legal restrictions, economical functions of the single European market, and the political policy-making process will be a central theme throughout this course.
The main format for the course is web-based distance learning, part-time, in English. The main forms of instruction are lectures, seminars, and assigned readings. This is combined with an individual assignment, peer feedback and a final presentation.
