Comparative European Politics: Europeanisation, Contestation, Integration


Module description

This module is supported by the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme.

In this module we introduce you to the evolution of key national institutions from the point of view of ‘Europeanisation’ (i.e. the impact of membership of the European Union), and offer a detailed examination of the national experiences of EU membership in relation to specific member states or groups thereof. The latter will be examined in relation to:

  • the motives for participation in European integration
  • the realities of EU membership (e.g. compliance with EU law)
  • competing views on the future of the EU.
