Le Grand Syllabus 2016/2017
issues at stake will of course structure the lectures, and theory will balance practice, but the approach will be down to earth, which explains why almost all prerequisite readings will be EU decisions, reports and public documents, so that students actually get a ﬁrst-hand hold on what the EU external action is, from an EU point of view. A lot of case studies will ensure that concepts get a concrete meaning. The course will ﬁrst provide students with a very concrete and dynamic understanding of what the EU external action actually does beyond its purely political, diplomatic and institutional actions (and who does what), why and how, for others as well as for itself, directly and indirectly.
