SOCIETY, CULTURE &
SOCIAL CHANGE IN EUROPE!

This module introduces students to the idea of Europe. It aims to understand European society, culture, and processes of social change through themes that help in establishing what is meant by ‘Europe’. The Module focuses on the central domains of social life in Europe; philosophical and intellectual revolutions (the advent of modernity); rise of democracy and capitalism (political and economic change); religion and secularization, changing demography, migration, immigrants, the process of Europeanization and Globalization (social structure); issues of marginalization, and social integration (contemporary challenges). These domains of social life will help students to relate to culture, society, and the process of change in European Society. International Relations in India has been focusing mainly upon the conventional areas of foreign policy, diplomacy, and inter-governmental dialogue.

This Module is one of its kind to offer an insight into the structure of European Society from an interdisciplinary perspective with a focus on understanding Europe sociologically.
