States versus Markets: The Emergence of a European Political Economy

Dienstag, 10.03.2020

What determines public policies in Europe? Which stakeholders are involved in drafting, passing and implementing policies? What are their preferences and their constraints when engaging in the policy process? How does this differ between European countries? Why do levels of expenditure or service provision vary over time or between countries? What role does the European Union play in the whole policy process? The course provides analysis and aims to stimulate debates about key political and economic processes in Europe, relating both to the 'project' of EU integration and to domestic policy challenges from the perspective of an evolving state-market relationship. The seminar introduces comparative research and debates on varieties of market economies focusing in particular on education, welfare and financial policies. The course shows how policy-making can be analysed and possibly influenced by determining the level of conflict between states and markets in policy-making. On the one hand, the course aims to familiarize students with classic texts and recent publications in comparative political economy. On the other hand, it will help students develop their own research paper that will be discussed in classroom beforehand. Students learn how to be effective participants in public policymaking as analysts, administrators, or advocates. Students should gain a comparative perspective and acquire analytical tools to analyse the political environment conducive to public policy.
