This seminar is designed for advanced students with at least basic prior knowledge of the EU political system and/or theories of public policy. The seminar will discuss a broad range of recent theoretical contributions in the study of EU policy-making. The discussed texts will provide a mix of theoretical arguments and empirical analysis of EU policy making. The goal of the seminar is to enable students to discuss both the potential and the limits of individual theoretical lenses in EU policy research and apply them to empirical cases of EU policy developments.
The language of instruction is English. Written work may be submitted in either English or German.
