Job Responsibilities:

The course France & the European Union investigates the political economy of European integration from the end of the Second World War to present day with a particular focus on the role played by France in this development.  It considers the incentives that have led an ever-larger group of European nations to form multilateral agreements around a growing range of policies that now incorporate such diverse spheres as defense, economics, and human rights. It then turns to the challenges Europe faces in maintaining the European Union (EU) in the face of growing skepticism among national electorates as well as attempts to undermine the EU (by Russia) or withdraw support from it (by the U.K. and the U.S.).

The course draws upon theories and readings from a range of social science disciplines. This includes work on the political economy of federalism and confederations, international relations scholarship on treaties and trade, public opinion research on Europeans’ attitudes toward regional integration and multiculturalism, and economic studies of the winners and losers among and within European nations arising from globalization and free movement of peoples.

It will provide students with an overview of the history of European integration, of the role of European institutions and member states, and of current developments and crises affecting the European Union. Particular attention will be given to the historical role played by France in the EU’s creation and development, and of the impact of EU membership on French society, politics, and economy.
