analytical lenses of policy analysis and political theory. Pedagogical format : Elective Course validation : A written essay will count 60% towards the ﬁnal mark. A presentation or an article's critique (including the debate and the group discussion) and the outline will count 30%. Participation in class will count 10%. Workload : After the introductory session, all course participants will in turn be required to introduce a chosen topic by a short presentation (max 15 minutes), if possibly followed by a short debate, or to present a critique of a paper or article suggested by the teachers, followed by a group discussion. Presentations are given by students and are accompanied by an outline (max 1,500 words) of the presentation or critique shared with the rest of the class in advance, no later than three days before the presentation. The outline should identify the main messages of the presentation and also anticipate some of the questions that will be raised during the debate/group discussion. On a topic of their choice agreed with the teacher, students will write an essay of max 5,000 words. The essay can be a small piece of empirical research, an advanced research design for a future project or an extended critique of a major piece of research in their ﬁeld. Pedagogical method : The course consists of 12 blocks of 2 hours, with introductory lectures, seminars and presentations. Course Description : The course will compel and guide students to develop tools, arguments and benchmarks to understand, explain and assess the EU, its governance and activities in the current context. In doing so, they will rely upon existing sources and datasets on legislative activities and performance, on values and attitudes as well as on other relevant dimensions of governance. At the end of 2009, the foreceful entry of the Lisbon Treaty had marked the conclusion of a decade-long constitutional process during which the EU changed remarkably. Since then, however, the EU response to the economic crisis has unveiled new dynamics and actors that interfere with the classical EU decision-making process and impact on its institutional architecture. Time is ripe for a new reﬂection on the governance of the EU.
