Don’t have much exposure to EU decision-making, or want to refresh your knowledge?
This preliminary module introduces the foundations of decision-making in the EU. It explains the principles and structures of the EU system and clarifies what the EU can and cannot do in certain policy areas. It introduces the main EU institutions, how they are related to each other, and what role they play in different types of decision making.
What will you learn:
- The legal bases for what the EU can and cannot do
- The main ways in which decisions are taken
- The different powers that Member States have given to the EU
We believe learning happens best with practical knowledge. So this half-day training includes:
- Extensive insights with multiple examples and real life cases
- Interactive exercise
This introductory module is part of the 3.5 day course. To take full advantage of detailed sessions and practical exercises, you can register for the preliminary module and the main course: Understanding EU Decision-Making: Principles, Procedures, Practice (+ preliminary module)
