language English
duration 2 weeks
credits 5 ECTS

This course focuses on contemporary security issues facing Europe today and on how European states are adapting to their new role in providing security both within and beyond the European territory. The course will thus examine the institutions of EU foreign and security policy; the future of the transatlantic relationship and of NATO; inter-institutional cooperation between the EU and the UN and other international actors in pursuit of ‘effective multilateralism’; regional challenges such as integrating the Balkans and solving the ‘frozen conflicts’ as well as European engagement farther afield such as Afghanistan and sub-Saharan Africa; and European responses towards the rise of emerging powers and their effect on global governance.
