The course considers European Societies from a sociological perspective, addressing the social issues and social processes that affect Europe. Topics that are only addressed as national issues such as work, family, and religion are examined at the European level. The course addresses how the widening and integration of Europe has raised issues such as nationalism, xenophobia and migration. The course introduces various theoretical concepts which provide a framework for the course and are then developed through the more substantive topics which may include the history of European Societies, family patterns in Europe, employment and welfare in Europe, xenophobia and racism.
