Inhoud
This module is part of the European Studies (ES) specialization track of Management, Society and Technology and Public Governace across Borders.
Many of today’s grand societal challenges, including mass migration, sustainability challenges, and digital transformation, are of such a nature that they cannot be effectively addressed by national or local governments. As such challenges transcend local and national borders, they are typically addressed by international, inter-governmental and supra-national authorities like the European Union. This module focuses on the EU’s addressing of grand societal challenges (for instance, in the form of the European Green Deal, the EU’s AI Strategy and the European Digital Single Market), in a context of structural societal and technological transformation and the shaping of a new technological era (like the ‘era of AI’). The EU must find new ways to govern and to strengthen existing policy infrastructures, to keep the European economy running, protect democratic values and institutions, and to ensure prosperity for all European citizens. And for this, the EU needs political and administrative capabilities to deal with the grand challenges and consequences of transformations in various of the EU’s policy domains, such as security, economic policy, welfare policy, migration policy, protection of democratic values, and so forth. Theoretically, using various theories and scholarly insights on (re-)shaping Europe, we explore how the EU addresses grand societal challenges in a context of transformation of the European economy and society at large. In the project, small project groups of students closely study various policy issues of the EU’s shaping of digital Europe, in order to make sense of how and to what extent the EU responds to the grand challenge of digital transformation and seeks to shape a fair, digital and sustainable Europe.
