Inhalt The present lecture deals with "critical" perspectives on European integration and with critical reflections on approaches to the EU as an object of analysis within the social and human sciences.
The qualification of "critical" itself will be reflexively considered during the lecture. Nevertheless, "critical" here as at least the following meanings. At first, "critical" refers to critics of mainstream theories of European integration, such as intergovernamentalism, functionalism and supranationalism as developed during the last fifty years. How is it possible to fill the gaps in mainstream studies of EU integration? How to "open up" the field of EU studies? One avenue is to "normalize" the EU as an object of study and to reflect upon a going back to classical legal, political and social theories and to apply them to the EU. For example, how does the classical sociology of Durkheim reveal new aspects of EU integration, or how can we apply classical theories of State building to the EU?
A second sense of "critical" here refers then to "critical theory" or "critical theories". Often, EU studies adopt implicitly liberalism as the main and sometimes exclusive paradigm to think about integration, without reflecting explicitly. How do critical theories of the liberal paradigm approach EU integration? We will, in this respect, go through critical approaches of EU's economic policy, discussing the relation between neoliberalism and recent EU economic developments, political science approaches reintroducing an analysis of power struggles within the EU. We will then move to post-marxist studies of the EU, reintroducing aspects of marxist and post-marxist theory in the study of integration. We will then move to post-structuralist approaches to the EU, such as the Foucauldian one, and we will discuss the advantages and limits of those "critical studies". Finally, we will see how it is possible and beneficial to introduce postcolonial as well as feminist studies to EU integration's studies. In the last session, critical philosophical investigations of Europe, such as in the work of Etienne Balibar, Jurgen Habermas and Antonio Negri.
