EU in Trade Relations

The Department of Political Science is pleased to offer a course entitled, PS 199: The EU in Trade Relations (CRN: 38129).  This course examines the significance of the European Union in International Trade Relations. It does so by exploring the EU’s multilateral, and bilateral trade relations, and by assessing the internal constraints under which the EU sets policies on these issues, with particular attention for the interplay among different EU institutions when the EU negotiates international trade agreements. The course not only provides an insight into the ways in which the EU’s multi-level political system operates, but also a rich overview of the ways in which the EU uses its most potential asset – trade – in its relations with the rest of the world.  The class will be taught by Professor Bart Kerremans of KU Leuvan in Belgium  The class meets April 8, 10, 15, 17, 22, 24, and 29 from 6-7:50 p.m. (1 credit hour).

Special arrangements for advanced credit may be made for qualified advanced undergraduates or graduate students wishing to complete a substantial paper.   Questions? Contact Joe Hinchliffe, 217-333-7491
