The objectives of the course are to explain a modern development of the EU, analyse key points in particular areas of integration and practise argumentation skills.
Výstupy z učení
At the end of the course, students will be familiar with the development of the EU after the end of the Cold War will become familiar with the institutional “landscape” of the European Union. They will be able to explain the main changes of the European integration process after 1989 and discuss the fundamental issues of the recent development of the EU as well. They will be able to present and demonstrate arguments on a given topic. They will be encouraged to work in groups and present the results of this work in the class. Students will be also well-oriented in searching for relevant information which can be used as a background material for preparing individual papers and group projects.
