  • Overview

    This module examines the economic, political and social aspects of the European Union, from the perspective of the Union as a whole, and from an Irish perspective. An understanding of the economic motives driving European integration and the effects of greater fusion of European national economies requires knowledge of markets in their microeconomic and macroeconomic aspects. This module is policy- rather than theorybased. The limitations of markets and the institutional initiatives and policies taken by the EU to modify market processes, in order to ensure spatial and social cohesion, are among other themes addressed in this course.
