The aim of the course will be to provide students with an advanced understanding of the most important developments in the history of European integration from an economic point of view. Students are expected to develop a firm grasp of the timing and nature of these developments, the most important areas and the interests of the member states.
Not offered every year, teaching period defined in the annual teaching plan.
The goal of this course is to present the facts, theories and controversies that are necessary to understand the integration process. The approach is based in economics analysis. However, economics is not enough; historical, political and cultural factors are presented when required to understand the process. The primary objectives of this course are then to increase the student's understanding of the developments of the European economic integration and their importance to today's world.
