|Module Title||THE DOMESTIC POLITICS OF EUROPEAN INTEGRATION|
|Co-ordinator||Dr Roger Scully|
|Course delivery||Seminar||1 x two hour seminar per week over one semester|
|Attendance and participation||10%|
This course will explore the links between national politics and the process of European integration. This exploration will adopt a dual focus: first, by examining the impact of member states? political systems, parties and internal political conflicts on the operation of the Union; secondly, by considering how the existence of the EU shapes political processes at the national level. These dual themes will be examined through an assessment of various theoretical perspectives and the consideration of several case studies.
