INTB 6662 - Political Economy of the European Union

Prerequisite: ECON 6601 . This course reviews how the EU has evolved, and explores how political, economic, and social dimensions interact with each other. It examines the role of member-states and their interaction with the EU supranational bodies to assess implications at the national levels and their citizens. The EU represents the largest economic entity in the world, the largest trade power, and aid donor. It has emerged as a normative global actor though neither a state nor an international organization. It attempts to evaluate what it means for the world at a time when the EU finds itself at the core of an existentialism crisis. 3 credits.
