HOEFFLER C. - International Governance : Actors, Mechanisms and Challenges (30h)

Professor Catherine HOEFFLER

The role of the European state is changing rapidly. European states harbour few illusions that they can manage and solve the serious challenges they are facing on their own. In order to cope with a globalising world, states increasingly pool their capabilities and sovereignty to achieve shared goals. This course tracks the evolution of the European state from the Treaty of Westphalia, evaluates the role and scope of International Organisations, and examines the impact of globalisation.
