This year-long seminar aims at introducing students to the principal historical, political and economic underpinnings of European Integration as well as at providing them with a deep understanding of core substantive law issues. To this end, we will revisit the founding cases of EU law in a fresh light, making use of the Total Law method, and study the phenomenon of European Integration through its five main facets: The Political, The Law, Community, The Market, and The World.

1. The Political
2. The Law
3. Community
4. The Market
5. The World

Be prepared for a very intensive but rewarding seminar!
