Research output: Book/ReportEdited bookpeer-review


Why do we teach EU politics? What should EU politics students learn? What are the practical approaches and techniques to teaching EU politics? In response to these questions, Teaching European Union Politics analyses the interdisciplinary nature of teaching this broad subject and reflects on a wide range of educational approaches. It both advances the pedagogy and practice of teaching EU politics, and provides practical support for those looking to adopt innovative and learner-oriented techniques.

Bringing together contributions from a number of leading experts from across Europe, this book’s comprehensive chapters focus on topics including comparative politics, international relations, history, law, policy and economics. In assessing diverse teaching techniques, such as problem-based learning, games, simulations, and study visits, it invites teachers to rise to the challenge of bringing critical perspectives into the classroom. The book asks teachers to consider how they should (re)shape their teaching practice to better equip students with a range of skills and knowledge for today''s turbulent world.

Providing detailed support for course development, this progressive book will prove essential for teachers and academics in European politics and policy, European studies, public policy, and international relations.
