Cursusdoelen
After finishing the course Space & Environment in the European Union the student is able to:
* Understand and explain the processes of EU policy-making and decision-making as well as the effects of spatially-relevant and environmental policies in the EU member states and regions;
* Understand and explain, from a theoretical perspective, the processes and outcomes of a Europeanisation of spatial and environmental policy arrangements and planning systems;
* Reflect on the governance arrangements, policy objectives and spatial and environmental impacts of EU policies, and to discuss the different channels of influence through which these policies achieve their objectives;
* Apply the most important concepts, developments amd policies of the EU in the field of environment and planning to specific issues of spatial and/or environmental relevance.
Inhoud
The European Union (EU) exerts a strong influence on its member states. It constitutes a new politico-administrative layer above national states, affecting national policies, politics and polities in a wide range of areas, including environment and planning. At the same time, national governments retain a crucial role in European integration. National civil servants and politicians are deeply embedded in the development and adoption of EU policies, as well as in their implementation ‘back home’.  
 
Many people see the EU as highly complicated or even mind-boggling. ‘Brussels’ defies easy categorization in terms of its structure, governance process and operational logic. On top of this, it is under constant (re)construction. To further complicate things, the EU is facing a number of existential crises and challenges: BREXIT, the financial crisis and migration to name a few. The EU is regularly criticized by national media and politicians, and distrusted by the people - either for being ineffective and weak, or for being too dominant and imposing on the member states. These criticisms also relate to spatially relevant and environmental policies.
 
In sum, the EU is important, complex, and heavily contested. For these reasons, it is imperative for students of planning and environmental policy to develop a deep understanding of processes of European integration and governance in those particular areas as well as more generally.
 
The course will introduce above aspects in combination with knowledge and insights specific to the fields of spatially relevant and environmental policies. These will be further developed in a number of lectures and working groups. Course themes include the history and background of the EU, government and administration in the EU, the EU policy process, and implementation and Europeanisation - all pertaining to the EU generally and to environment and planning specifically.
