Course Description: This course gives insight into the making of European policies and its consequences for its citizens. The course uses both a bottom-up and a top-down perspective, and focuses on the forces that speed up or slow down European integration, the formal and informal procedures by which European policy is made, and the effects of European decision-making for politics, society, and citizens. The course uses theoretical perspectives from public administration and political science. The knowledge gained from these insights are assessed by means of a written exam. In addition, students work intensively on a number of recent cases of European governance to gain more understanding in its actual processes. Special attention is paid to: Brexit; the role of the EU in the financial crisis; the role of the EU in the refugee crisis; Euroscepsis; enlargement of the EU (Turkey) and its consequences; the formal and informal venues for lobbying; the most effective strategy to influence decision-making. Theoretical and practical insights come together in a paper on a case of lobbying by either a civil society actor or governmental actor in Europe.
