The course is one of the optional intermediate courses under the Study Track in Politics and Organisations.

After completing the course, students will be familiar with the major trends of European politics in recent decades and able to discuss questions of European politics on a level deeper than daily politics.

Students will also be able to challenge public notions on the causes and effects of European politics.
