Course Description

The course is divided into two main parts. In the first section of the course, we discuss current developments of the European Union, particularly the Europeanization of the "old" member states. This part of the course provides the theoretical and analytical foundation for the discussions in the remainder of the course. The second section of the course focuses on the process of enlargement, and the obstacles that might occur from the communist past of the Central- and East European accession countries. Particular attention will be paid to different aspects of the eastern enlargement, such as the issues of democracy, political culture, the view on a market economy and social equality, and the challenges that might develop from the enlargement for the European integration.
