Course Description: This course offers what might be called an advanced introduction to the European Union (EU), including its history, institutions and decision-making processes. The course examines some of the key aspects of the EU’s international relations. An honest appraisal of the strengths and weaknesses of the EU is offered. The EU has been referred to as the most successful peace experiment in history, and the most successful international organization in history. The bases for both of these claims are examined. However the EU is also experiencing several interlocking and enduring crises which some claim are a threat to the very future of the organization. These crisis include the sovereign debt crisis, the migration crisis, the Ukraine crisis, a ‘democratic deficit’, and Brexit. Each of these crises are considered in some detail. Assessment: two exams (60%), papers (30%), class participation (10%).
