Political Science | Contesting European Integration
Y490 | 14679 | Rohrschneider

This seminar introduces participants to how European Integration is
contested in Europe. We will pay particular attention to (1) how the
EU is currently being organized; (2) how various mechanisms—parties
in particular—frame European Integration in domestic debates; and
(3) how citizens, in turn, evaluate various aspects of the EU.
Together, information about these aspects provide insights into why
the widespread support for integration, that existed until the early
1980s, disappeared over the past decade.
