This co-taught seminar aims to introduce Ph.D. researchers within the CIVICA network to the main theoretical approaches to the EU as an actor and a regulatory regime pushing for specific policies to foster regulatory alignment and core-periphery integration and to develop the capacities of EU Members States. The co-taught seminar will start with two lectures mapping the field of transnational regimes, regulatory integration, and the specificities of study of EU integration and continue with a lecture on the structure of the EU's institutional and decisional processes structuring the EU regulatory regimes. Then, six lectures will approach the main theoretical approaches and some challenges to progressing EU integration in various areas (cohesion funds, food safety, developmental banking, environmental policies, and sustainable agriculture). The co-taught seminar will finalize with a session dedicated to Ph.D. researchers presenting their work and a wrap-up session. Topics 1. Introduction of participants and presentation of the general outline of the co-taught seminar. Introductory topics - Theoretical approaches to the study of the integration of countries in the EU, Laszlo Bruszt 2. EU as a regulatory regime: Challenges of integration, Matthias Thiemann 3.
