The Social Dimension of European Integration (College of Europe)


Bart Vanhercke has been appointed as Visiting professor at the College of Europe (Bruges campus), a postgraduate institute of European studies. During this academic year, he will be teaching a course on ‘The Social Dimension of European Integration’ to an interdisciplinary group of students from across Europe. The course addresses the interaction between EU economic and social policies as well as the variety of EU social policy instruments. It will ultimately ask this question: is the ‘European social model’ a reality or an elusive concept?
