Crédits ECTS 3
Volume horaire total 24


This course addresses issues in the historical development of European political systems which provide the context for European integration as we know it today. We focus on the study of political systems and their development. Emphasis will be placed upon the role of history, typologies of political systems, actors and logics, different constitutional organizations as well as political parties and interest groups in Europe. Comparisons with other countries and areas will also help the students understand the general topic. We will explore how the EU project affects these national systems and their public policy and we will discuss the problems and conflicts linked to the current European debt crisis.
