Understanding Europe: Present and Future of the European Union

Fall, Spring, June. Credits: 3. Language: Spanish

This course offers students an overview of the European Union, its structure and functioning, analyzing the rights and freedoms of its citizens. The European Union is one of the most important players in the international arena, so special emphasis will be placed on the analysis of current issues, and the challenges the institution faces. The first part of the course will be an introduction to the study of the European Union from its inception to present day, with particular attention to the entry of Spain and the transformations that occurred at an economic, political, social and legal level. We will also examine the challenges currently faced by the European Union, particularly the severe economic and institutional crisis of the twenty-first century.
