Description:
Course content is designed in three parts. The first part deals with main theories of Europeanization and EU Enlargement as it evolved out of EU s foreign policy into its largest political project. Students will acquire knowledge about rounds of Eastern Enlargement starting with the first round in 2004, and they will engage with literature that compares subsequent rounds of enlargement. The second part of the course will deal specifically with challenges of enlargement in the countries of the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Kosovo, Macedonia, Serbia), given the particular security framework, as well as the evolving EU capacity for monitoring and benchmarking of the accession process in Chapters 23 and 24. The third part of the course will analyse how specific policy sectors are affected by European integration, focusing on anti-discrimination policy, environmental policy and public sector reform.
Students will meet with representatives of Western Balkans embassies during seminar classes through guest lectures, after holding seminar presentations. Active participation during these visits is highly recommended.
