2014 - Summer



Introduction to the European Union

This courses introduces students to the history, institutions, and policies of the European Union (EU). Originally formed in 1957 by six nations, the EU is currently composed of twenty-eight member states. A commitment to cooperate did not become a priority until after World War II when hesitation about relinquishing certain aspects of national sovereignty was overridden by the war's devastation. The authority of the EU evolved slowly through a series of treaty agreements to encompass a complex network of social, political, and economic responsibilities. In the process, an elaborate structure of institutions developed to manage the EU's expanding range of activities.

Course begins June 2nd and ends July 31st.
