Contents

The content of this subject is developed over 11 chapters.

The first three chapters deal with general issues, such as the EU institutional system, Community law, the Community budget and decision making.

Then, in the following five chapters a wide set of community policies are studied. Throughout them we work on understanding the most relevant community interventions, such as agricultural, regional and cohesion, competition, trade and environmental.

Finally, in the last three chapters, the Monetary Integration process up to the introduction of the euro and the international dimension of the European Union are studied, with special emphasis on the role of the euro at the international level.

In summary, it is about offering the student an overview of the most relevant elements of the European Union, studied from an economic perspective. This is intended to answer several questions, such as: What is the EU, from an economic point of view? What does it do in the economic field? How does it work? What are some of its most relevant consequences?
