YOUNGS R. - EU Democracy Promotion and Human Rights Policy (25h)

This course examines EU policies in the field of democracy and human rights. It will assess how far a commitment to support democracy and human rights is incorporated into EU external relations. The course will consider whether there is a conceptually distinctive European understanding of democracy, before examining the nature of EU policies in a number of different regions of the world. A key reference point for the course will be the ‘Arab Spring’, which has returned the issue of democratic reform and democracy promotion to the forefront of international relations.
