This course examines and explains the international role and external action of the European Union. The course begins with the origins and institutional evolution of the EU’s foreign policy making system and highlights diverse theoretical and methodological approaches concerning the study of the EU as a global actor. Following that, it focuses on the role of the EU in the world examining various policy areas such as trade, development, environment, climate change, security and defence. In addition, it evaluates the role of the EU in its close neighborhood and the EU enlargement policy. The course concludes with the assessment of the interactions between the EU and the key powers (i.e. USA, Canada, Russia, China) and international organizations (i.e. United Nations).

Fall 2018: EURR 5106/PSCI 5609, Energy Policy in Europe: Security and Transition. Instructor: Dr. Matúš Mišík (Visiting Scholar from Comenius University Bratislava). The course examines energy policy of the European Union and aims to provide an overview of the development and current situation in this policy area. The aim of the course is to examine intricacies of the policy and explain its complexity. The course analyses internal and external dimension of EU energy policy, its legal basis, the main issues connected to this policy (especially energy security and energy transition), and different types of energy and their utilization within the EU. The course examines also external energy supplies that are crucial for the Union as its member states do not produce enough energy domestically and they have to thus import energy from the third countries. Renewable sources of energy together with nuclear energy will be discussed along with different new sources of natural gas for the EU including the North America. Please find the course outline here.
