The Construction of the EU and its Consequences for citizens 

This seminar course is oriented to Masters students who would like to do research on EU politics and/or wish to substantively improve their knowledge and understanding on the policy outputs (and their political consequences) produced by the EU governance. It focuses on discourses on institutions, democracy, policy-making and public policy. The approach of the course is to establish a substantive link between the theoretical, empirical and normative analysis of the European Union policy process. The course analyses the modes of governance in Europe. The focus of the course rests on the existing relationship between institutions and the outputs of the public policies implemented in the EU.

The European integration process and its economic and social impact

To know the functioning of the European political system, it is necessary to have a basic understanding of the public policies that are elaborated and decided in Brussels, as well as the political logic of why states have decided to transfer those policies to Brussels. The main objective of the course is that students have a systematic knowledge of the governance model that exists in Europe at the end of the course, as well as the main results of the public policies that it implements.
