The course considers the European Union, as an evolving polity. It aims at exploring the logic of policy-making in the EU and the dynamics of the European integration process the by analyzing the history of EC/EU, by studying theories of integration, by surveying the actors and institutions of integration politics and by discussing crucial issues that might shape the future of EU  (with a special emphasis on the recent economic and financial crisis).  The acquired knowledge will help students pursue individual research on EU-related topics.
