PSCI445: Topics in European Politics
European governments face a number of challenges in the 21st century -- welfare state reform, immigration, regionalism, creating a common foreign and security policy, and forging a new European identity. In this seminar, we analyze some of the major economic and political issues facing European nations since the collapse of communism in 1989 and we seek to explain the varying responses of governments to these challenges. This upper-level, discussion-based seminar is designed for students who already have some knowledge of European political systems. Limit: 15 Prerequisite: PSCI 240 or permission of instructor.
