Introduction to European Integration
Volledige vakbeschrijvingThis course studies the evolution of European integration from the late 1940s untill today. It first seeks to explain and rationalize the birth of the European Communities in the 1950s, their slow development in the 1960s and 1970s as well as the revival of the integration process from the mid 1980s. After having taken a close look at European integration in the East during the Coldwar time, the course covers a chronological and detailed analysis of the Treaties of Maastricht, Amsterdam and Nice, the death of the notorious European Constitution and the final adoption of the Treaty of Lisbon. The course will enable students to develop their own views on whether the current European Union can be labelled as a success or not, and to assess the numerous critical views expressed in the media on the future development and direction of the European integration process.
