"European Integration and Global Studies" branch of the Master in Advanced European and International Studies in Berlin-Nice-Rome [+]

Masters in Political Science in Africa 2017. The European Integration and Global Studies branch of the Master in Advanced European and International Studies (MAEIS) is targeted at students who have completed their undergraduate studies. Its objective is to give students an overarching, encompassing vision of the political, social, economic, and cultural challenges of today’s world. The teaching modules are (for a detailed description see below): * Conflict and cooperation in the international system * European integration and external action * Federalism and multi-level governance * Economic globalisation and sustainable development * Professional Skills Workshops The Master programme follows an original approach which distinguishes it from other Master courses in European Studies and International Relations: The MAEIS is an international, interdisciplinary and itinerant programme. Following the slogan “Learning and living Europe”, the participants rotate each trimester, moving their place of studies from Berlin to Nice and then to Rome. The MAEIS is a one­-year ­programme, subdivided into three study terms. The programme allows students coming from all over the world to develop a thorough understanding of the role of the European Union in a growingly complex and turbulent world. From international conflict settlement to trade agreements negotiations, democracy promotion or sustainable development strategies, students discover how EU institutions, policies and actors shape this role by exploring case studies and discussing with field experts. Degree and recognition Students who successfully complete the programme are awarded two certifications at the end of the academic year: Master in Advanced European and International Studies: This is the diploma of CIFE, certifying the successful completion of the academic curriculum and granting 60 ECTS credits at Master level. The degree qualification Chargé de Mission en Organisations Européennes et Internationales (Policy Officer in European and International Organisations): This qualification is recognised by the French state as a degree at Master level (level 7 of the European Qualifications Framework EQF). Career prospects The graduates of CIFE’s Master’s programmes work as Senior officials in European institutions, policy officers within the UN framework, administrators, diplomats, consultants, researchers for think tanks, lobbyists, and academic experts. Admission requirements This graduate programme is aimed at students who have already completed a first degree (minimum three years of study at university level). Furthermore, students must have a good knowledge of English. You can find more detailed information on the application procedure and apply online at Deadline for applications: 1 July 2017 Overview of the academic year The first term starts in Berlin. It encompasses introductory classes to the five modules of the programme. Our partner in Berlin, the Institut für Europäische Politik, provides a dialogue with EU and international organisations experts The second term starts off in January in Nice, on the Côte d’Azur. Here teaching continues with a focus on the new international order, its the perspectives for conflict or cooperation, and the EU's role in this context. Lectures explore European interventions in diverse domains, such as trade, democracy promotion, conflict resolution, climate change, development aid, shedding a light on how EU institutions and policies are designed to make EU roles effective on the international stage. The second focus of the programme is laid on the current challenges the EU project is facing (euroscepticism, economic governance crisis, Brexit, refugee crisis). During this term students take their mid-term exams. A one-week study trip takes them to European and international institutions in Brussels, Strasbourg, Luxembourg. For their third term, students move on to Rome, where courses by academic experts and practitioners in the five modules provide students with an in-depth knowledge of the key issues addressed in the programme. Students also have the opportunity to advance in their research work, as they are left free of obligations from mid-May to end of June to work on their thesis dissertation. The programme concludes with the defence of the thesis and the final oral exams at the end of June. In Rome, courses are organised in cooperation with CIFE's long-term partner, the University L'EuroSapienza, and the Isttuto Affari Internazionali (IAI). Teaching modules Conflict and cooperation in the international system The module aims at enriching students’ understanding of the similarities, differences and interactions of national foreign policies in a globalised world. It considers emerging patterns of international politics, including international law and international tribunals, globalisation and transatlantic relations, as well as conflict management. European integration and external action At the beginning of the new millennium, the European Union can look back at considerable achievements such as the completion of the monetary union. On the other hand, the EU remains confronted with huge challenges: New member states in Central and Eastern Europe need to be fully integrated, the EU institutions must be reformed, a common identity for foreign and security politics must be reinforced, the acceptance of the EU amongst its Member States’ populations needs to be strengthened. This seminar aims at familiarising the students, who could well become the next generation of European and international decision-makers, with an expert knowledge of the structures, institutions, and problems of the European Union. We focus firstly on the historical development of European unification and then go on to analyse the Union’s institutions and study the basics of EU law. The last part of the program is devoted to the different policies of the EU and especially emphasises the challenges of enlargement. Federalism and multi-level governance For the last fifteen years, federalism has known a revival as an international field of studies. In this framework, three major developments can be considered. The first is the study of the European Union, not analysed any more as a process of integration but in terms of federal institutional comparative approach. The second development is multi-level governance, that can be conceived as an extension of federalism as it deals with any form of multi-tier institutional system. This cooperative/competitive approach has appeared to understand the institutional consequences of the process of globalisation in post-industrialised societies, and of the subsequent changing of nature of sovereignty in the relevant states. Eventually, federalism has become a tool of conflict resolution, in order to resolve violent conflicts all over the world. Examples include Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ethiopia, Iraq, and Nepal. It is also perceived as a solution for Syria, Cyprus, Ukraine, Libya… As well, new federal discourses have emerged in historically centralised countries. It appears that all these developments share a same multi-tier conceptual framework, referred to as federalism. As such, they add themselves to older federal questions, such as political co-operation, democratic representation, minority issues and economic coordination. However, understanding the contemporary evolution of the federal meaning and of its main uses requires an innovative analytical thinking. This module will bring together these new approaches and highlight the changing nature of federalism in an ever more complex world. Economic globalisation and sustainable development The main goal of this module is to shed a light on the key forces shaping economic globalization processes in their various dimensions: international trade, financial markets, currency issues, etc. Without going into the details of economic theory, the module helps students understand the contribution of these fundamental driving forces to long term economic development as well as major economic crisis. Beyond a broad overview of the current state of the world economy, the objective is to understand how globalization refers to the problem of international economic governance, and to describe the institutions, actors and processes at work when it comes to cooperation challenges in order to solve economic public goods management problems such as trade dynamism, financial stability or monetary cooperation. The module puts a specific focus on the role of the EU as an economic actor on the global stage, with its opportunities and challenges driven both by European specific evolutions and globalization trends. Finally, the module proposes an introduction to global sustainable development issues (climate change, access to water, etc.), as they are among the most decisive challenges that will shape the future of the world economy. Professional Skills Workshops This module equips the participants with the professional skills and competences that will enable them to work in the context of the European and international organisations: project cycle management, intercultural management, international mediation and negotiation, drafting of position papers and policy recommendations.
