Politics of European Governance for graduate programmes in Politics and International Relations.
This course analyses the institutions, actors and policy-making processes in the European Union (EU). How does the EU manage to cope with heterogeneity of interests, ideas, actors, and policy problems? Can European governance be effective and democratic? The class develops theory-driven answers to these questions. In addition, it analyses important themes of EU research (including how the EU actually makes decisions from a negotiation perspective, what determines whether or not member states comply with these decisions, the effects of enlargement, and the relationship between transparency and democracy to name but a few).
