This course examines the history and development of the economic and political integration of the European Union. Beginning with a detailed review of the treaties and agreements upon which the EU is based, we look at the institutional structure of the EU including the Commission, the Court of Justice, the European Council and the European Parliament. We will also focus on the EU budget process, the policy process, agricultural policy, external relations between the EU and non-member nations, and on the key questions of EU enlargement, common defense, and national sovereignty vs. EU integration.
There will be several short analytical papers, a final exam, and a term paper. The course is both reading and writing intensive, and is recommended for students interested in international trade, international finance, global management, or economics concentrations.
