Course syllabus

 

No Propaedeutic course is needed, previous basic knowledge of EU law or Western European History or History of International Relations may help  

 

This course taught in the English language in the framework of “European Studies LM/90” is aimed at providing Italian or foreign students with a comprehensive exploration of the history, institutions, and politics of European integration since 1945.
The rationale of this course is to focus on the (political) actors, theories of integration and the resulting European treaties that shaped the European institutions.
Therefore, every module shall illustrate:
1) actors and political thought behind integration strategies;
2) treaties that resulted from negotiation and agreement between the Member States;
3) the European institutions established by the relevant Treaty.
