OSPFLOR 26: The Politics of the European Crisis: from the Maastricht Treaty to the Greek Crunch

The course will discuss and analyze the European Crisis, which started in Greece in 2009 and is still going on. The main objective is to help students develop a critical comprehension of the inner functioning of the European Union's economics, politics and institutions, so as to understand the reasons for the crisis and the solutions undertaken.nnThis course is divided into three main parts.nnThe first part will explore the ways in which the crisis has affected the functioning of the European institutions, in particular how it has changed the role of the European Parliament, of the European Commission and of the European Council. By analyzing the European financial crisis we will be able to understand the specific institutional framework of the European Union and how it differs from the U.S.nnThe second part of this course will examine the ways in which Europe has addressed the crisis through its policies (fiscal, monetary and banking policies), and how they have consequently evolved. A comparative analysis with the United States will show the complexity entailed in having one monetary policy and nineteen distinct national budgets. nnThe third part of the class will come to grips with the bail-out programs implemented in five European countries (Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Cyprus). We will consider both successful examples such as Spain and Ireland, and more problematic ones, such as Greece and Portugal. The rise of populist parties, in Greece and in many European countries, is addressed as one of the key challenges in Europe.nnThe course concludes by looking at the next steps in the progress of European integration: how far away (and how difficult) is the creation of a true Political Union in Europe, similar to the United states? Are the 28 Member States ready to give up more sovereignty? And if so, in which areas? If further steps are not accomplished, what are the risks of moving backwards? What are the risks of a potential disruption of the Euro? Should the U.S. be more engaged with the current European situation in light of the broader geopolitical risks?
