Summer School Courses

With this module, explore your interests in one of our four focus areas on International and European affairs, including issues such as conflict resolution approaches (terrorism, war, migration), the place of religion in the European public sphere, the Eurozone crisis, European identity and values, etc... 

Most of courses are conducted by world-renowned International professors and researchers in their respective domains of expertise.

Rethinking the European Union

The course provides an overview of the state of the European Union in the 2020s. It begins with an introduction to the subject matter and the recent history of the European Union, beginning with the Lisbon Treaty, the Eurozone crisis, Brexit and Covid. Contemporary European integration is then examined through three lenses: European identity, democratic legitimacy and effectiveness. We then take a closer look at the case study of Brexit and how to interpret what it could mean for the European Union. Lastly, we examine prospects for the European Union over the next 30 years.
