Department of Sociology at the University of Crete, Greece
Jean Monnet Chair
Chair Holder
a) C.V.: Andreas MOSCHONAS (B.A. Concordia University, M.A.& Ph.D Queen's University, Canada) is currently Associate Professor of Political Sociology in the Department of Sociology at the University of Crete, Greece, and Jean Monnet Professor of European Integration. He holds the Jean Monnet Chair in Political Sociology of European Integration. He has published a number of articles and books on Greece and the EU., including: The Impact of European Integration: Political, Sociological, and Economic Changes(author & co-editor, Praeger,1996), “European Integration and Prospects of Modernization in Greece” (Journal of Modern Greek Studies,1997), and Education and Training in the European Union, (Ashgate,1998). He does research on political parties, euroelections, and trade unions and european integration.

b) Jean Monnet Courses:

i) Course 1: Political Sociology of European Integration.

This is a core course in the three-course programme of the Chair, introducing the students to the political sociology of european integration, i.e. to the analysis of the relations of power which historically appear at the supra-national level. Based on the idea that the political institutions of the EU not only express but also affect social processes, the course examines the logic of the establishment of the EU from both a historical and theoretical perspective, the institutions of the EU, the articulation and representation of social interests at the european level, and the content and the form of the basic policies of the Union.

ii) Course 2: Comparative Political Sociology: The Euro-Mediterranean Partnership.

This course takes up the international dimension of european integration and concentrates on the very topical issue of the Euro-Mediterranean Parthership. Adjusting to the requirements of the academic field of a Sociology Department, the course mostly employs the methodological tools of comparative political sociology. Specifically, the course systematically explores the historical specificity of the Mediterranean countries (both of Southern Europe and of North Africa and the Middle East) in the context of their relationship with the process of european integration. Thus, the course analyzes historically the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership (in all of its three dimensions: economic/financial matters, political/security matters, social/cultural/humanitarean matters) by focusing on such key social and political questions as: the social/class structure of these countries, the social and political expression of civil society (eg. trade unions/professional organizations/political parties), the role of ideology and of political culture, with particular though not exclusive reference to the role of Islam, and the specific function of democracy and the state.

iii) Course 3: Special Issues of European Integration.

This is a seminar-course and has as a prerequisite the core course in the three-course programme of the Chair (course1, above). Although its content may change from time to time, the seminar concentrates on the social dimension of european integration in an effort to bring to the fore the constituent parts of the so-called Social Europe. Thus, the seminar discusses such key concepts and themes as: the logic of the social dimension of the EU, the means for social policy action (eg. Structural Funds, Community Support Frameworks), the issue of economic conversion, social and economic cohesion, the dynamics of employment and immigration in the EU, european education policy, individual and social rights, the issue of european citizenship, and the role of the forces of the Left in the process of european integration and in the enhancement of Social Europe.
