Certificate in Intercultural Communication - Politics of the European Union POLI 3321   Politics of the European Union
Europe is a complex polity. Almost all countries are members of the European Union (EU), which has common government institutions and policy-making processes. The course examines these important developments in the context of theories of integration. Among topics discussed are the common currency, agricultural politics, the common foreign and security policy, social policy issues, and the significance of institutions such as the European Parliament. The role of the EU in the global economy, and expansion into central and Eastern Europe, are also discussed.
