09 Europa und seine Nachbarn – EU-Außenbeziehungen im Umbruch?

-
Hauptschule
Seminar
in englischer Sprache

In diesem Seminar betrachten wir Herausforderungen und Sicherheitsrisiken, die sich durch die Entwicklungen an Europas östlichem und südlichem Rand ergeben, und beschäftigen uns mit der Frage, ob der strategische Ansatz der EU weiterhin angemessen ist. Zunächst ziehen wir Bilanz über die Veränderungen in der arabischen Welt seit Beginn der Aufstände Anfang 2011. Während sich manche arabische Staaten in schwierigen Übergangsprozessen befinden, herrscht in Syrien Krieg, der sich auf seine Nachbarstaaten auszuweiten droht. Syrien wurde im Kalten Krieg zum Schlachtfeld zwischen dem schiitischen Iran und dem sunnitischen Saudi-Arabien. Europa hat Angst vor der Ausbreitung von politischem Islam und Extremismus sowie einem immer wachsenden Flüchtlings- und Migrationsproblem. In einem zweiten Teil sehen wir uns die Nachbarschaftspolitik der EU in den Staaten der sogenannten Östlichen Partnerschaft an. Welche neuen Kooperationsstrategien mit ihren östlichen Nachbarn hat die EU nach dem Scheitern des Gipfeltreffens der Östlichen Partnerschaft im November 2013 in Vilnius? Welche Auswirkungen hatten die jüngsten Proteste in der Ukraine auf die Beziehungen zwischen der EU und der Ukraine?
