General description

The course consists of student seminar part (presentation and discussion of course readings, 28.2. and 6.3., 3 ECTS); and a public-private seminar part. In the first part of the public-private seminar public and private actors present and scholars act as discussants (7.3), and in the second part scholars present while public and private actors act as discussants in order to create genuine public-private-academic dialogue (8.3.). Students attend the public-private seminar and prepare a learning diary (2 ECTS), as well as an independent essay (5 ECTS, by the end of the IV period). The aim is to understand the need for and conditions of a dialogue between policy makers (public actors which regulate economic policy), companies and their unions (private actors) and scholars (who assess and envision economic policies), to better understand the politics of European/Eurasian economy and its prospects of long-term sustainability at the face of state debt, slow growth vis-à-vis the BRIC and shrinking share of world GDP in Europe of which several states in wider Eurasia are dependent in terms of markets and investment. For this end the course develops up-to-date theoretical and methodological tools in international political economy.
