A special extra-semester course taught by dr. Othon Anastasakis (St. Anthony’s College, University of Oxford)

CES, in cooperation with the Department of International Economic Relations FIR PUEB, offers an attractive off-semester course on the European Union in Polycrisis and Uncertainty, taught by Dr Othon Anastasakis, Director of the Centre for European Studies, University of Oxford, in the fall semester of the academic year 2023/2024.

Since the start of the financial crisis in 2008, the EU has been confronted with a series of crises causing internal divisions and existential risks for its future. From the eurozone to migration crisis from Brexit to populism, from COVID to the war in Ukraine, the European Union is trying to respond to emergency situations with varying degrees of success. Faced with economic, political social and geopolitical challenges the EU is adapting to a new reality of crises and unpredictability. The aim of this course is to look at how the EU navigates uncertainty, within a competitive multipolar world and seeks to understand whether the consecutive crises make it stronger or weaker internally and externally.

The course will run from 16-20 October. More information about the course can be found here
