5 FROM THE EDITORS In the Fall of 2011 Poland is presiding over the work of the EU Institutions. This is an important and symbolic moment for Poland and its citizens. Since May 1, 2004 when ten European countries have acceded to the European Union, the understanding of European integration in Poland is better and better. The interest of this process may be proven by the growing number of courses and programs focused on the European Union. The John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin is one of these institutions where European affairs are treated seriously. In 1998 the Chair of European Union Law has been established and ten years later this Chair has initiated a new Bachelor Program in European Studies. The Chair has grown into the Institute of European Studies and in the Fall of 2011 this Institute is opening a unique and prestigious Undergraduate and Graduate program focusing on European Affairs, where the primary language of instruction is English. This Handbook is meant to be a tool helping our students to navigate through the curriculum and better understand the goals of the education. The process of creating an ever closer Union among the peoples of Europe is still under way. It has its ups and downs. After the collapse of the ratification process of the Constitutional Treaty European states have agreed on the reform Treaty signed in Lisbon that has (not without difficulties) entered into force on December 1, European Union post Lisbon was supposed to be a more effective and stronger organization, equipped with the new tools such as European External Action Service, but also more democratic and respectful of the constitutional identities of its members. As always life has written its own screenplay and European solidarity and cohesion is tested with
6 6 FROM THE EDITORS the global economic crisis, which has revealed economic weakness of some of the Member States of the Union. This became a true test for the Euro-zone, and for the European integration process itself. So too is the Arab Spring and the migration movements experienced by Malta, Italy, Greece, Spain and France that have followed the revolutions and demonstrations in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and other States in North Africa and the middle East. The idea of a multicultural society within the European Union has never been so contested as now. This opposition to the open immigration policy is reflected in the actions of France and Denmark that are trying to withdraw from the achievements initiated a quarter of the century earlier in Schengen, We still have to come up with the answer how to protect the rights of migrants in Fortress Europe where there is increased need for the protection of internal security. And also how to reverse demographic catastrophe and take advantage of immigration into Europe that is turning into a real Old continent. Europe is promoting its democracy as a model for the external world. The Council of Europe and its European Court for Human Rights serve as a guardian of individual rights and freedoms. In this matter we face interesting developments in Europe. How can one understand consent given by the Court to keep the Crucifix on the walls of public schools in Italy when confronted with the ban on wearing burqas in public places in France, Belgium or Holland? These and many other questions will be subject of our inquiry in the Bachelor of Arts in European Studies Program. This program is designed to give the students a multidisclipinary and multicultural approach to these important issues facing contemporary Europe, without ignorning Europe s place in the World or the importance of Europe as a global actor. At the same time the program is designed to develop in the students the critical thinking abilities and practical skills necessary to be successful in their eventual careers. We are convinced that studying these phenomena at the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin will help our students to understand the processes that surround us and give them skills to be active players in the European Affairs in Lublin, Warsaw, Brussels or Strasbourg.
