The Idea of Europe: From the Lisbon Earthquake to the Lisbon Treaty
This comprehensive course fills a gap in ISCTE’s educational portfolio, since it covers key aspects related to the historical development of an identity in the context of the European Integration project, as well as the institutional structure and functioning of the European Union and relates these structural aspects with current domestic and external challenges.
This comprehensive course will begin by covering key aspects related to the historical development of an identity in the context of the European Integration project, starting with the age of Enlightenment all the way to the end of the second world war and the formalization of the European Coal and Steel Community in the early 1950s. Some cross-cutting aspects will be explored in more depth, such as the theoretical, ideological, and normative dimensions of European values and norms. The course will cover the development of the institutional architecture and the treaties and dynamics that gave way to the current European Union structure. It will also focus on the EU’s functioning and main policy areas as well as the role it has been assuming on the global stage as a norms promoter.
On completion of this course students should be able to:
- apply and understand the complexity of theoretical, ideological, and normative dimensions of European values and norms;
- pinpoint the motivations that led to the European integration process;
- understand the role of history and socialization in the establishment of the principles that guide the European integration process;
- identify the main actors within the EU institutional architecture, as well as the interactions and inter-institutional dynamics that take place therein;
- analyze the role that the EU envisages for itself in its wider neighborhood and in the world;
- identify the EU’s discourse in which it portrays itself as an ideal model
- analyze the motivations and implications of the EU’s enlargement policy
- identify the EU’s challenges and discuss potential solutions for these challenges
