Europe is confronted by a growing number of challenges on the world stage, ranging from the rise of emerging economies and new security concerns to the implications of Brexit. Drawing on theories of international relations, comparative politics and European integration, this programme allows you to engage with the study of European and global governance from a variety of perspectives – the domestic, the regional/supranational, and the global.
