  • POLICY PROCESS IN THE EU

    This section of the course is designed to permit students to understand the European Union Public Policy Process and to be able to conceptualise the EU's policy in terms of policy analysis.

    Learning outcome

    This course seeks to balance the theoretical and the immediately practical of the European Union Public Policy. It is focused on the analysis of the processes whereby public policies arise and are enacted in the European Union. It compares theories and models of policymaking and decision-making to illustrate the special requirements of the EU environment; examines the roles of various participants in the policy process: legislators, political parties, interest groups, administrators and administrative structures, citizens and the judiciary.

  • EUROPEAN FOREIGN POLICY

    The Course is about the EU as an actor of the world political system. The student is guided to gain knowledge about the making of the EU’s policy towards the political and security relations with the rest of the world.
