The Chair will integrate the EU external agenda on environmental issues in 6 in-class teaching courses, both in French and English, amounting to 90 hours/year.
This in-class teaching will rely on ex-cathedra presentations followed by Q&A interactions with students. The lectures will provide students with the key analytical tools to apprehend the EU’s role in global environmental diplomacy. The aim is to introduce students exposed to a variety of courses on international politics, environmental politics or multilevel governance to the contribution the EU is making to global politics, especially on important environmental matters. Lectures centered on the EU’s role in global Anthropocene politics will therefore be integrated in the usual course curricula, using the EU as a landmark and challenging illustration of broader debates. The lectures will explain how to analyze relevant primary and secondary sources on European diplomacy on global environmental issues, introducing the key academic literature and its associated concepts. They will be followed by debates and interactions with the students for their active participation.
For each course, the Chair Holder will create a specific section on the Active Learning Platform
(Moodle) dedicated to the Chair’s topics, including the Toolbox and a forum for discussion. Ex-cathedra lectures, dedicated to these specific timely debates, will be adapted to the audience that is meant to be as diverse as possible to reach targets that currently lack teaching and training on the Chair’s topic. More precisely, the 90 hours of teaching will be distributed among 6 diverse courses, taught on a yearly basis, in order to mainstream environmental issues, reinforce EU external action studies and link global politics to EU studies, while targeting a large diversity and high number of students.
