The European integration has been the most decisive development to transform Europe since World War II. Externally, the EU has slowly emerged as a major player on the world scene, while internally the system attempts to strike a balance between continued enlargement and further political integration. The European Union, in cooperation with Europe, is facing many critical challenges with Brexit, the aftermath of the refugee crisis, as well as the rise of populism and polarization. We examine these current challenges and explore ‘how to play the game’ in the current EU political field.

European Game of Politics: Crisis and Survival
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits
The European Union has been called an Unidentified Political Object (UPO) because it is less than a federal state, but more than a federation of states. Therefore, the European game of politics is rather special with deep impacts on the present EU crisis and the future of EU survival. This course offers a broad study of the EU, including historical development, governing institutions, political processes, economic cooperation and challenges as well as major policies and approaches to the present crisis, and teaches ‘how to play the game’ of politics in Europe.
