The objective of the summer academy is to provide students a broad understanding on the historical development, the economic, societal, political and philosophical dimensions of the European integration project. Furthermore, the course analyses Europe's role as an international political and economic actor and its relations to different countries and regions of the world. The classes are based on an interdisciplinary approach and combine different methodologies such as lectures, round-table discussions, group-work and students' presentations.
Hence, students will not only gain valuable insights into European Studies, but also will train and improve their research and presentation skills.
