Report

The European Union has the world´s largest GDP; the world´s third largest population; and is among the highest ranking in the world for health, education and living conditions. Through NYU Florence´s The EU in Focus series, students learn about what the EU is, its history, how it works and its role in the global economy. Students who participate in a working group linked to the series will develop a deeper understanding of how EU policy-making works through the study of two specific policy areas and will further their knowledge through a trip to other European cities where European institutions are located to meet with experts to find out how the policy-making process works from the inside.

Read LPD´s EU in Focus blog and essays on this page to find out more about student experiences over the course of the Fall 2014 semester. The Fall 2014 series was coordinated by NYU Florence student Claudia Cereceda, read Claudia´s account of the students´ trip to Brussels here.

Students interested in participating in the Spring 2015 EU in Focus series, and/or being involved in its organization, can write to lapietra.dialogues@nyu.edu for more information.

Spring 2015 lectures will include: EU Institutions and Decision-Making Processes, EU History and Economy, and the EU Judicial System. The policy focus areas will be: immigration and data security/privacy (subject to change).
