The main objective of the course is to familiarize the student with some important themes, paradigms and authors in the International Relations field in a theoretical-practical perspective, starting from the analysis of specific cases and situations. In this sense, in the first part the course attempts to give an overview of the main elements that characterize the history, theory and dynamics present in the relations among States and among International Organizations, taking into account especially the main schools of thought. Second, we will analyze specifically the history of European integration, with a focus on the challenges in fields such as security, citizenship, regional integration, governance and democracy.
Based on the abilities and skills described above, the student is expected to be
