Course Description

The Seasonal School aims to offer a critical assessment of the current governance structure of the EU and the key policies designed to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. It will evaluate the impact of the pandemic crisis together with the previous crises which had hit the EU at least since 2010. In such a difficult context, the pandemic crisis could represent both a factor of disintegration and an opportunity to deepen integration and create a more supranational union. The Seasonal School delves deep into these scenarios, focusing on the new tools and institutions set up to manage the effects of the pandemic crisis and the complex relationship between the Union and the member states. In order to understand the tensions and interpret the changes brought about by this unprecedented crisis, the School will provide an interdisciplinary perspective based on public and comparative law, EU and comparative politics, and policy analysis. By the end of the School, students will be able to: 1) Critically analyse the recent key events and developments in the pandemic and other EU crises and their impact at the national, 2) Develop methodological skills – across different disciplines, perspectives and approaches – to assess the complexity of the crisis 3) Gain advanced knowledge of EU politics and law and acquire transferable skills to work in the EU institutions, think-tanks, interest groups, and in academia.
