The Jean Monnet Chair in the EU’s Eastern Neighbourhood Relations at Carleton University supports courses related to the European Union on a variety of topics. The course outlines for these courses are made available for consultation:
EURR 2002: Europe and Russia in the World. This course is an interdisciplinary introduction to the position of Europe, the European Union, and the Russian Federation in international affairs. The temporal focus is on the period following the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe. Please find the course outline here.
EURR 5205/PSCI 5111/INAF 5807: The European Union and its Eastern Neighbours The course will examine relations between the European Union (and its members states) and post-communist countries to the east, including Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia, and Ukraine. Examples from a range of policy areas will be drawn upon, including border and visa policy, energy policy, and security issues in the post-Soviet space. Implications of Russian initiatives, such as the Eurasian Economic Union, will also be explored. Recent developments, including the Ukraine crisis, will be discussed and analyzed. The course examines the material from the perspective of various actors, to avoid either a Eurocentric or Russocentric approach. Please find the course outline here.

This course for graduate students examines various issues in research design and methodology, with examples from the academic literature.
