15 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This module seeks to provide an advanced level exploration of the historical, theoretical and legal foundations of market integration. It will examine the processes of integration, both ┐positive┐ and ┐negative┐ and the creation of the internal market. It will introduce the main elements of the ┐four freedoms┐ ┐ goods, persons, services and capital. Its approach to the subject is thematic, by seeking to identify and deconstruct core concepts such as regulation and de-regulation, harmonisation, non-discrimination, mutual recognition, and public interest imperatives. Account will be taken of the broader aims of the European integration project, in particular the balance between its ┐economic┐ and ┐social┐ objectives.
