While the centre of world's geopolitical gravity is shifting away from the European continent, the political, security, economic and cultural developments on the Old Continent reverberate well beyond its boundaries. This unit will assess the international significance of European (dis)integration, the impact of global developments on Europe, and the changing role of Europe in the new world order. After examining the key institutions and processes that surround the EU's international relations, the unit will focus on the most pressing policy areas such as security, trade, climate change, and relations with major and emerging powers.
