Modules

The aim of this unit is twofold. The first aim is to offer an analysis of the framework in which policy-making in the EU is set, focusing on the interaction between theories and policy development. All governments in the contemporary world have to contend with numerous constraints, which limit their realistic policy options, for instance, the forces of local cultural resistance and the logic of subsidiarity. This is even more true of the EU in that it has few of the attributes of government as traditionally understood, has to accommodate an enormously wide variety of national political cultures and is involved in a process of redefining both its governing processes and its internal identity and composition.
