Learning outcomes

To provide conceptual and theoretical tools that shed light on how the interaction of great and small powers - including both European powers and Russia - has historically shaped the Northern European region; 2) to apply the conceptual and theoretical tools to the contemporary context where supranational integration and regionalization both at the interstate and substate level challenge traditional great and small power dynamics; 3) to provide necessary prerequisites for the students for assessing and examining international dynamics in Europes north independently.

General description
