WOLFF A. - Complex Security Governance in Europe (8h)

The European continent has the densest network of interlacing international security organizations in the world. This seminar investigates the complex and overlapping nature of security decision-making processes in Europe. Specifically, the course explores how decision-makers navigate the dynamic interactions between national governments, NATO, the EU’s CSDP, the OSCE, and the UN Security Council. To analyze complex governance, the seminar employs methodological tools such as multi-level analysis, networking theory, issue framing, and resource interdependency. Classroom discussions will center on practical case studies which include the Ukraine crisis, the Libyan war, and development of European counter-terrorism policies.
