About the course

EU governance refers to the ‘rules, processes, and behaviours that affect the way in which powers are exercised at the European level, particularly with regard to openness, participation, accountability, effectiveness, and coherence’. In this sense, EU governance is an attempt to make sense of the intricate web of institutions, rules and mechanisms that frame EU policymaking.

The seminar introduces participants to governance structures, processes and players and to the ways in which decisions and rules in the EU are made in varous institutional configurations. The course further illustrates the operation of EU governance through 3 key policy areas that are analysed in greater depth: EU economic governance, EU foreign and external policy, and EU human rights and citizenship.

Participants will acquire the knowledge and competencies to engage in a critical discussion of the EU's future direction and legitimacy, both analysing ist famed "democraric deficit" and questioning its institutional evolution in light of recent policy challenges. Participants thereby gain a solid foundation for positions in which EU competence is required.
