Informazioni generali

Obiettivi: This graduate course addresses several questions. Why the number of regional integration schemes around the world has multiplied in the last decades, often with consequences as important as (or more important than) those wrought by global factors. Is there a way to explain the proliferation of regional integration schemes? Why do states participate in several forms of regional integration instead of pursuing multilateral or global integration? Why can we observe such a variety of institutional forms in regional integration?

The approach will be historical, we will explore causes and consequences of regional integration phenomena and examples and we will include a comparative study of several regional integration schemes.

This course's methodological approach will privilege: a critical examination of the most qualified trends in historiography, a rigorous analysis of the available primary sources (e.g. treaties, negotiations and s.o.). The course will enable students to apply their knowledge to the analysis of the complex processes of regional integration of the past and present times.

The students will prepare and submit a 15-page research paper before the end of the second part of the course. All papers will be discussed in class.

This graduate course addresses several questions. Why the number of regional integration schemes around the world has multiplied in the last decades, often with consequences as important as (or more important than) those wrought by global factors. Is there a way to explain the proliferation of regional integration schemes? Why do states participate in several forms of regional integration instead of pursuing multilateral or global integration? Why can we observe such a variety of institutional forms in regional integration?

The approach will be historical, we will explore causes and consequences of regional integration phenomena and examples and we will include a comparative study of several regional integration schemes.

This course's methodological approach will privilege: a critical examination of the most qualified trends in historiography, a rigorous analysis of the available primary sources (e.g. treaties, negotiations and s.o.). The course will enable students to apply their knowledge to the analysis of the complex processes of regional integration of the past and present times.

The students will prepare and submit a 15-page research paper before the end of the second part of the course. All papers will be presented in class. A research paper can be preparaed by a student working team.
In alternative, students can present discussion papers to the class, to develop their own argument and to be able to defend their position. The discussion may draw on specific policy or historical
examples. This kind of presentation must be made by a single student at a time (working groups are not admitted).
