Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The subject deals with the European Union's external links to other clusters within economic, security, development and humanitarian cooperation. It not only illuminates the current external aspects of the European integration project but is also devoted to their transformations over time. The interpretation is continuously supplemented by explanations of new economic policy mechanisms (eg European Semester) related to overcoming external macroeconomic imbalances.
