The EU faces many challenges in today’s global economic climate: taxation and monetary policies for the European Economic Area, labour market reforms, globalisation, sustainable growth, competition regulations and the relationship between the EU and emerging market economies are just a few. You will study all this and more in the European Economic Policy track.
What will you learn?
The European Economic Policy track requires you not only to assess existing European policies and identify existing challenges, but also to absorb different arguments and form your own opinions about them. You will develop skills in interpreting different models and communicating your opinions about them to others in a persuasive manner.
At the end of the track, you will be able to:
- assess how Europe can meet the challenges of globalisation, and develop its relationships with emerging economies in Asia and Africa
- evaluate the value of the European social policy model
- define the main challenges and opportunities within the EU and why the integration process develops at different rates in different countries
- understand the wider implications of this process
