This is an advanced policy course and therefore it has several prerequisites.

First, you will need the ability to work with (and think critically of ) various resources (lectures, seminar readings, complementary reading list, background textbook, various websites) as there is no single textbook available to cover all issues  that would be up-to-date, given how fast various European reforms proceed in recent years.

Second, you will need knowledge corresponding to the content of the course "European Economic Integration" (JEB026).

There is only the final exam on May/June.

Description
The course covers major aspects of the economic policy-making in the European Union. It addresses general topics such as economic theories behind the European economic policies, political economy aspects of the European policy-making, and the current EU challenges. It also pays attention to the institutional set-ups and major challenges of the key European economic policies, namely monetary, fiscal, financial stability and - last but not least - agricultural policy. The impact of the important recent events such as financial crisis as consequences of enlargement is also explored. The course includes guest lectures by external speakers who are prominent experts on specific European policies.


Objectives
The objective of the course is to improve your ability to understand the current European economic policies, to assess them independently and to present your views in both the oral as well as written form. These are all skills that are useful to many professions such as policy-makers, analysts in financial or international institutions, researchers, experts in public sector or journalists. These skills are especially important now in the post-crisis period, when many European economic policies change dramatically and when views on how they should be changed are diversed.

Prerequisites
This is an advanced policy course and therefore it has several prerequisites.
First, you will need the ability to work with (and think critically of ) various resources (lectures, seminar readings, complementary reading list, background textbook, various websites) as there is no single textbook available to cover all issues that would be up-to-date, given how fast various European reforms proceed in recent years.
Second, you will need knowledge corresponding to the content of the course "European Economic Integration" (JEB026).

Course materials
There are various recourses from which you can study the subject:
Lecture notes: As there is no single textbook available to cover all issues, lecture notes are rather detailed to give you the most support possible when studying the subject. In annexes, complementary reading, selected models or terminology is attached to lecture notes. You can also quite easily google most of the concepts quoted in the lecture notes (in some cases, relevant websites are even quoted directly in lecture notes). Lecture notes are being gradually posted on website.
