European Integration


European integration shapes all of our lives on a daily basis. This is most visible in the European Union. But would you have known that NATO, for instance, is also an example of European integration? Very basically speaking, behind this term lies the voluntary cooperation of States in a multitude of fields, such as politics, economy, sports orculture, in various for a: international organisations, ad hoc coalitions of States or informal groups. We want to dive a bit deeper into that topic together with you and find out why European integration exists, why it matters and how it is carried out, focussing on the European Union. In order to do that, we will take a look at historical ideas and the development of our subject matter - it is much older that just 75 years! We will also cover - in tiny bits and pieces - politics, philosophy, economy, sociology and - given both lecturers, Christina and Sebastian, are lawyers - a bit of law (just a bit). There is nothing you need to know in advance, you can participate in this course being an absolute beginner. We are very happy to welcoming you to this course and meeting an international class! Feel free to discuss with us on whatever you want to know more about, also ongoing issues and affairs you might have read about in the media.
