European Integration 1, 30 ECTS Credits
COURSE CATEGORY   Singel Subject Course
The course addresses integration and disintegration both within and between European countries; the construction of the European Community and Union; and the related institutional, legal, political, economic and social devcelopments. Although special emphasis is placed on the process of integraion as seen from the new Scandinavian member states, the course treats all aspects of trans-European integration. The rationale for the establishment of this course is the need for an interdesciplinary approach to questions of trans-national integration. The course will:
- provide an understanding of the centrifugal and integrative aspects of European national and trans-national interconnections and interdependence in broad temporal and spatial terms.
- provide students with analytical tools to examine historial and contemporary European relationships.
The History of European Identity, 5 points
This part of the course deals with the question of "European Identuty" up to 1945. Did it exist, how did it develop, what was the role played by geographical conditions, education, religion, culture and politics? How did European institutions evolve? A guiding concept in this block is that the history of Europe can be seen as a constantly changing system of network that enable people to exchange ideas, trade and culture.

European Democratic Culture, 5 points
In this part of the course, historical and contemporary European and national citizenship are examined. A bearing thought here is that the development of democratic cultrure has played a central role in European politics since the creation of direct democracy in ancient Greece. Democracy has, of course, by no means been universally accepted or taken for granted in Europe, and even today the question of democratic forms for European governance are central to many political controversies.

Contemporary European Institutions, 5 points
This part of the course presents the evolution and transformation of institutions in Europe after 1945. The creation and development of the European Community are dealt with, and the expansion of the European Community to the European Union. Major institutions and political actors such as the Commission, the Council of Ministers, The European Council, the European Parliament, European Union Law and the Court of Justice, and other institutions and actors, both formal and non-formal, are treated. Spcecial emphasis is placed on policies and policy processes such as the Budget, Agricultural Policy, External Relations, National Influences and controls on European Union Processes. Other institutions that are presented are the mass media and interest groups.

Europe and the World beyond Europe, 5 points
This part of the course deals with regions, locality and development in different parts of Europe. Of central importance are relations between the centre and the peripheries of European countries, and of the relationship between the center and periphery of the European Union. Economic development, culture, migration, demography, regional policy, the environment, and ethnicity are treated. The teaching block also deals with the role of Europe in the world beyond Europe.
All tuition is in English.
