The Geschwister-Scholl-Institute of Political Science (GSI) of the LMU Munich echoes this internationalization strategy. The Geschwister-Scholl-Institute (GSI) is one of the leading political science institutes in Germany. The wide range of courses at the GSI, along with the specialization modules on political theory and political systems, allows to deepen one’s knowledge of International Relations and European Politics. The teaching units at the GSI offer seminars on a regular basis, which illuminate the European Union from the different perspectives of the political science disciplines.
In the context of this core competence and efforts to promote international academic networking, Professor Dr. Dr. h.c. Weidenfeld (Center for Applied Policy Research / CAP) and Professor Dr. Goetz (Chair of Political Systems and European Integration) developed appealing summer academies on European Studies.
