This subject focuses on current debates on the European Union (EU) and Globalisation, and examines the EU as an International Actor. It introduces students to concepts of integration: polity. globalisation and social model. It applies them to contemporary analytical debates and public discourses on the EU"s political development and external reach. It examines the stances of political scientists. sociologists. economists and legal scholars regarding the EU"s usefulness as a model of integration. It scrutinizes divergent conceptions of the EU and its political development. It examines globalisation"s central place in narratives of European Union development. Much scholarly analysis assumes that European regional economic integration constitutes a model for the rest of the world and a model of social and political governance internationally, based on norms of good governance and democracy and human rights. This is scrutinized in the course. It is expected that the value of interdisciplinary analysis will be illustrated.
