The European Game of Politics: Crisis and Survival
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
The European Union has been called an Unidentified Political Object (UPO) because it is less than a federal state, but more than a federation of states. Therefore, the European game of politics is rather special with deep impacts on the present EU crisis and the future of EU survival. This course offers a broad study of the EU, including historical development, governing institutions, political processes, economic cooperation and challenges as well as major policies and approaches to the present crisis, and teaches ‘how to play the game’ of politics in Europe.
Week-Long Study Tour: Brussels 
Core Course Week: Study tour to Southern Denmark-Northern Germany + a two-day seminar in Copenhagen 
Prerequisites: Two semesters of political science at university level, with at least one focusing on either international relations or comparative politics.
