Course description

The research-based program delves into the social dimensions of Europeanization. It examines how deeply European nation-states are integrated into a European community and explores the conditions that could foster further integration. The program focuses on socio-cultural and cultural differences, similarities, and conflicts from a comparative perspective. It analyzes how economic, political, and social Europeanization impacts societies at the national level. Additionally, the course places Europe and Europeanization within a global context, comparing them to other regions worldwide. Study subjects include the socio-cultural aspects of Europeanization, the conditions for further integration, and the comparative analysis of cultural differences and similarities. The study program names are "Europeanization" and "Comparative Cultural Analysis."
