Abstract

The class aims at explaining how the EU works as a political system. Thus, the class takes a comparative politics perspective with regard to the European Union trying to avoid views which consider the EU either as something unique and in need of its own theories and approaches to be studied and understood or as an international organization comparable to other organizations present on the international arena. Taking the assumption that political systems as such can exist in settings others that a state as a starting point, in this class we propose to analyse the EU institutional architecture and policies resorting to the tools of comparative politics and mid-range theorizing. The first half of the class deals with the separation of powers in the EU whereas the second half examines the EU political system’s output, that is the supranational policies produced by the EU. This approach to teaching and studying the EU was proposed by Simon Hix and Bjorn Hoyland in 2011.
