Politics of the European Union

This seminar will fulfill either the comparative politics or international relations subdisciplines of political science majors. It will explore the construction of a common and supranational Europe--the European Union--from its formation to the post-Cold War period. What are the possibilities of, and limits to, cooperation among the fifteen sovereign states of Europe, as they attempt to address old and new problems? Topics include Europe between war and peace; approaches to regional integration, new institutions and decision-making; European identity; international relations with the US and other regions; and public policy. The course is designed to promote discussion and writing skills.
