Europe is at a crossroads. Political and economic integration in the European Union (EU) exceeds levels reached in the rest of the world. Economic integration not only affects trade but also migration, agriculture, competition, regions, energy, and money. Most euro area economies have been struggling with interlocking crises involving debt, banking and growth. Moreover, the EU is facing Brexit and a migration crisis. This course studies economic integration, the ongoing crises, and policy responses. It uses economic analysis to study policy issues.
