How the European Union works: become easily an EU expert
The European Union (or shorter: EU) has a big impact on the lives of people living both inside and outside the EU. Some professors say that over 70% of the laws of the EU countries are based on decisions of the EU.
However, very few citizens know or have the feeling they know what’s going on in ‘Brussels,’ the heart of the EU. Who is important and who’s not? How big is the budget? Why is there lobbying? Is it democratic? Can I make a difference?
These are questions that are so basic that it’s difficult to imagine there is no clear answer.
A course for beginners
And that’s what you’ll learn in this course: to explain what’s really going on. It’s meant for persons who are interested in being able to follow and explain EU news. By explaining the EU step by step, with basic terms, you’ll learn who decides what and when.
Students studying international politics or EU studies may also be interested. The course gives a thorough introduction of how the EU makes decisions. At the end of each of the ten sections, there are relevant links to learn more.
All the EU actors
You’ll start by learning the EU language and the main political actors in the first 5 sections, how EU laws are voted in section 6 followed by a section on the budget. You’ll also learn why people dislike the EU, and the remaining actors, such as NGO’s, are covered in the last 2 sections.
You’ll also see a number of misconceptions and learn whether they are true or not. For example, how big the EU’s budget really is. Or why EU countries aren’t the only ones deciding what the European Union does.
By the end of the course, you’ll be able to explain how the European Union makes its decisions, what impact Europe has on you in your everyday life, what impact you can have on the European Union, and how you can get most out of the EU. So let’s get on the road to become an EU expert!
You’ll also get a free ebook to guide you in the course.
