Human rights, democracy and the rule of law are at the core values of the European Union (EU). Yet in light of challenges such as migration and societal integration, Brexit and the rise of Euro-scepticism, the future of the EU is far from certain. In a world of converging cultures and different political and legal systems, Politics, Law and International Relations in Europe students explore how policy-makers negotiate between member states with a range of different nationalities, languages and agendas.

Within the programme, you are directly enrolled at Maastricht University and able to take classes at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences –recently awarded the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence for outstanding education and research on European integration- as well as the Center for European Studies.
