The European Union. Regional Integration in Comparative Perspective

Our intensive European Studies elective is on offer again for the winter semester! Enrol now!

Course dates: Monday 17 to Friday 21 July

This Graduate course addresses issues relating to the challenges and implications of European integration in a comparative perspective, and examines the process of regional integration in the fields of law and regulation, trade and the environment, common security policy and immigration.

Students will gain interdisciplinary insights to the process of regional integration and thus be equipped to make comparative analysis, engaging with questions such as:

• Can the European model of integration help us predict the possibility of and paths towards integration in other parts of the world, such as Asia?
• What are the external implications of European regionalism?
• Is regional integration effective and desirable?

This interdisciplinary course will appeal to students of international relations, European politics, history, comparative law, public policy and international business. It will be taught by guest lecturers associated with the ANU Centre of European Studies, who will include practitioners as well as academics. It will be taught in an intensive format over five days.

The course is available as an elective in the following ANU graduate study programs: Liberal Arts, International Affairs, International Law, Graduate Studies Select and SPIR Honours. It is also available as an elective in other graduate study programs with permission from the program convenor.
