Welcome

This is the course page for European Studies 316, also listed as RES 316 and Politics 316. The course focuses on two major and interconnected changes that have occurred in Europe since the collpase of the USSR and the end of the Cold War. First is the question of enlargement and its impact on the organization and politics of the European Union. The European community (now the European Union) has undergone five enlargements, tha latest in January 2007 bringing its membership to 27 states. How has this changed domestic European politics and its role in the world? Second, is the issue of immigration which is related to Europe's expansion. Europe has always been a place for immigrants, but its expansion has attracted increased immigration from new neighbors in the Mahgreb, Middle East, and Eastrn Europe (Russia, Ukraine , Moldova and the Caucasus). How has this affected Europe at home - the rise of anti-immigration parties, for example - and its member states' immigration policies?
