To identify the key-moments of the European integration, to underline individual and institutional constraints, to evaluate the impact of economical and external factors, to analyze the influence of internal factors.
The student will be able to understand issues involved in several projects, crises and relaunches, which deal with political, economic, military or institutional questions. The student shall focus on converging or diverging elements, taken from different episodes of the European integration, asking how these crises have modified the paths, the plans, and the visions sketched by the so-called "founding fathers". Finally, the student will discover how history can shed new light on current debates.
This class will be taught on campus.
Prerequisite: none. Support: a table of contents and slides accompagning the lectures will be made available on Moodle.
