63545-01 - Seminar: European Societies and Politics: Voters, Parties, Governments 3 KP

Semester Herbstsemester 2021
Angebotsmuster einmalig
Dozierende Silvana Târlea (s.tarlea@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt What is the relationship between political power and political representation in Europe today and at
which level of the policy-making environment do policies get shaped? Which stakeholders are involved
in drafting, passing and implementing policies at European, national and sub-national level? What are
the preferences and the constraints of the actors engaged in the policy process? What role does the
European Union play in the whole policy process? The course provides analysis and aims to stimulate
debates about key political processes in Europe, relating both to the 'project' of EU integration and to
domestic policy challenges from the perspective of an evolving citizens – elected representative
relationship.
The seminar introduces comparative research on European Union countries relying on state-ofthe-
art literature in the field. On the one hand, the course aims to familiarize students with classic texts
and recent publications in comparative European politics. On the other hand, it will help students
develop their own research paper. Students learn how to be effective participants in public policymaking
as analysts, administrators, or advocates. By the end of the course, students should acquire analytical
tools to analyze the political environment conducive to public policy in Europe.
Lernziele - By the end of the course students will develop a better understanding of the political and social environment in which European policy-making takes place
- Understand the linkages between the European and the national level of policy-making
- Students will recognize competing interests of national and European level policy makers and how they contribute to policy-making in Europe.
- Students will be able to engage in debates regarding the policy-making environment and to build their own theory-driven arguments about current affairs in Europe.
- The course will help students improve their written and oral communication skills and to improve their analytical thinking.
