Europe: The State of the Union
R. Daniel Kelemen
Director, Center for European Studies
|Workshop #1: Teaching the European Union
Dr. R. Daniel Kelemen, Associate Professor of Political Science at Rutgers University and Director of the Center for European Studies.
Dr. Kelemen is a specialist in EU politics, law and regulation. He serves on the Executive Committee of the European Union Studies Association and the editorial board of the Journal of European Public Policy.
With its 27 member states, its maze of institutions and its bewildering acronyms, the EU is hard for many citizens to understand. Teaching the European Union to American students - making the subject accessible and fascinating for students - can be challenging. This workshop will explore central themes concerning the EU (what it is, how it developed, how it affects us) and review teaching materials and lesson plans on the EU available online.
