The program

The European Spring Institute 2008 is a seven-day academic program designed to bring together 30 undergraduate and graduate students of various nationalities and academic backgrounds providing them with an exciting opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the current EU politics through exchange of ideas with academics, policy practitioners and fellow students from different cultural environments.

Two full-fledged academic courses will be taught during the program. The initial four classes and workshops will be dedicated to the study of the history and philosophy of the EU integration, changing role of institutions and creation of common policies before and after the Enlargement. The second part will discuss the role of the separate EU actors in the decision making process and lobbying mechanisms deployed.
Each course consists of eight lectures/workshops, two guest lectures, summary session, and final exam. Despite the heavy course schedule, students will also have a chance to share experiences in less formal environment.
