The second half of the course will examine some of the fundamental challenges facing the EU as it seeks to become more competitive, to integrate further existing states into a fuller political economic Union, to enlarge its membership and to develop a viable common global trade policy and a more effective and coherent common foreign policy. The course will also examine the political, economic and social convulsions, still evolving in many cases, resulting from the European ﬁnancial crisis of recent years. The course will analyze, with the beneﬁt of ﬁrst-hand experience, the conﬂict between the traditional theoretical aims of the European Union and the complex practical political reality of achieving those aims. To this end a number of case-studies will be analyzed and debated during the course.
