EUROPE IN THE WORLD : ACTORS, STRUCTURES, AND PROCESSES
Semester : Spring Number of hours : 24 Language of tuition : English
Teachers : Benedikt ERFORTH (Doctorant en Sciences Politiques/ Teaching Fellow). Pedagogical Format : Elective Course Description : The European Union, home to more than 500 million people, is a signiﬁcant player in the international system. Together, the 28 (soon 27 ?) European Member States account for an estimated 30 per-cent of global wealth and are the world's ﬁrst exporter of goods and services. As a civil power, Europe is also the world's largest donor of development assistance and has developed a diplomatic service that maintains a network of more than 139 delegations around the world. While there is no denying that Europe matters on the international scene, the European Union also remains a divided actor, with its Member States pursuing agendas of their own and even acting in open contradiction to one another and the Union's common agenda. These discrepancies invite us to question the different actors, structures, and processes that account for European action abroad. We will begin by deﬁning this unique political entity on the international scene. After a brief overview of the different institutions that make and shape European foreign policy, we will then delve into the various policy areas that fall in the realm of European external action. We will question Europe's trade, aid, and neighborhood policies and put particular emphasis on Europe's changing role as a security actor in the world. Throughout the course, you will acquire a combination of theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the context of European policy-making.

EUROPE IN A DISRUPTIVE WORLD
Semester : Spring Number of hours : 48 Language of tuition : English
Teachers : Khalil HABRIH (Doctorant), Zaki LAIDI (Directeur de recherche au CEE, Sciences Po), Paola PASQUALI (Doctorante). Prerequisite : None Pedagogical Format : Seminar Course validation : One in class midterm exam ( 40% of the ﬁnal grade ) and one in class ﬁnal exam ( 60% of the ﬁnal grade) Course Description : Can Europe as a supranational institution ﬁnd its place in a competition dominated again by nation-states ? How can a political entity like Europe whose DNA is based on multilateralism behave when the WTO is despised, the Iranian nuclear deal threatened and the Paris accord on climate challenged ? How can Europe , whose faith on free trade goes back to the Treaty of Rome can react in front of the rise of protectionism and the lack of reciprocity in world trade ? How can an actor like Europe who is traditionally reluctant to use force can protect its borders and guarantee its own security at the time where it is challenged by new threats and by the fragility of US commitment ? This course aims at giving students a conceptual framework aiming at understanding the role of the EU in global affairs. Required reading : 1 required article and between two or three suggested readings, for each class. 254
