European Union Political Processes


Credits: 4 ECTS

First semester

Elective Courses




This course aims to provide students with the analytical tools and the practical skills required to understand how the EU works and the challenges it faces. The European Union is an important player in international relations and is also a unique model of cooperation between States. It is therefore useful for students enrolled in the Master in international relations or in international security to have clear ideas about its institutions, decision-making procedures, and some of its main policies. The course will give the opportunity to students to familiarize themselves with practical case studies and to directly relate to EU officials.
