The course consists of three parts: Part One traces the history of European integration from the end of the WWII through 2002. To facilitate different interpretations of the EU in the making, part one also reviews the main academic debates about European integration and about the Union. Part Two looks at the institutional politics of the EU including a detailed analysis of the formal and informal aspects of EU governance.
