BSRM0440 M3 European Integration and State Transformation in the European North, 12 ECTS

Learning outcomes

The module seeks to combine the processes of Europeanization to the wider global politico-economic fashions which have taken rather different forms in different parts of the BSR.

Learning outcomes: The students understand the key dimension of the emerging territoriality of the EU. They should also be able to discuss and outline the recent politico-geographical developments such as "Europeanization", welfare state transformation, neoliberalist globalization, socio-spatial changes induced by science, technology and innovation policies, and transformative and normative power of the EU in the European North.


Given the rapid territorial expansion of the EU coupled with an increasing political potential of the Union, this module thus aims at providing the students with basic knowledge of the processes of "Europeanization" in the European North. During the past fifteen years, European Union has become one of the central powers in the European north. Most of the states within the Baltic Sea region are now members of this "European club". The question of EU's internal and international influence is beginning to take centre-stage in scholarly debates. In the European north, the EU is clearly becoming a sort of a model power which uses its transformative and normative power to mould its internal and external environments (neighborhoods), including North-West Russia. It does not come as a revelation, therefore, that there is a growing interest in academic circles to the changing dynamics and nature of EU power. A number of conceptualizations have emerged in recent years to capture these apparently novel forms and patterns of EU's internal and international influence. This module therefore seeks to introduce the processes through which European power manifests itself.
In addition to that, the module provides the students with basic knowledge on the ways through which northern European states are gradually taking new forms at the age of the so called globalization. Also, the module uses a selection of science, technology and innovation policies as examples of emerging transnational and state spatialities in the Baltic Sea Region.
