Institution Logo Maastricht University

European Studies: Global Policy and Governance Challenges focuses on Europe's relations with other parts of the world in the context of a rapidly changing global environment. The programme looks beyond the institutions of the European Union and its policies to examine key global challenges such as the crisis of multilateralism, the rise of the BRICS, Europe and international migration and developments in the Global South. The programme employs an interdisciplinary approach, combining political science, history, international relations, sociology and globalisation studies. The focus is on how Europe is affected by a changing world. 

What will you learn?

  • think about globalisation and the changing global environment to critically assess the  development and migration policies of the EU, the EU member states and of non-European countries
  • analyse Europe's relationship with other (emerging) global players and regional organisations to interpret European policies in a global context
  • develop professional skills to conduct policy analysis and evaluation and action research, which seeks to make academic research also of value for wider society
