As in the US, European governance is modeled on capitalism, rights, and democracy. European nations and the European Union, however, approach these topics distinctly. An approach to Model Europe – in comparative perspective and centered around the case study of France – is the topic of the Comparative Public Policy: Whither “Model Europe”? summer course from The American University of Paris.

About

As Europe faces the most serious threat to its consolidation since Maastricht – calling into question the EU’s very existence – policy makers, political pundits and citizen activists are struggling to find constructive solutions. To continue to advance its consolidation, the EU must move forward on large, contentious issues, such as a common defense and monetary policy.

Yet simultaneously, member states are hamstrung by EU regulation on smaller issues, particularly in the environmental and social policy spheres.

The Comparative Public Policy: Whither “Model Europe”? summer course from The American University of Paris. will explore this paradox as it impacts three seminal issues: immigration policy, environmental policy, and business. 

Faculty experts and guest lecturers will work closely with students to understand the contradictory mechanisms at work in all three policy spheres, querying which political strategies are best adapted for the successful future consolidation of Europe. The aim of the course is to provide students with a sophisticated understanding of European policy modeling and contemporary challenges to the European Union.
