This year’s European Summer School is titled “Challenged Union: Making sense of the troublemakers”. How are current challenges changing the dynamics of the European integration? Facing the consequences of the debt crisis, current migration wave and security situation in the neighbourhood, is the EU moving towards more or less Europe?

Academic program

The program comprises of short lectures that introduce main topics of the course, debates with experts, moderated debates between students, meetings with relevant stakeholders and visits to state institutions dealing with European topics.

10 lectures, 3 excursions, 2 meetings with stakeholders, 2 Oxford-style debates

We want to get students involved, give them opportunity to discuss current EU issues with experts and equally motivated students. Therefore the program will highlight the importance of Q&A sessions and will be complemented by two Oxford-style debates, where students will be divided to smaller groups and assigned a position to argue for more supranational or intergovernmental setting of the course of selected policies. (Security and defence policy, external relations, economic governance - two topics will be selected based on preferences of accepted participants)
