July 13 - August 7, 2020
The online summer school provides an overview of the historical, cultural and political framework of European integration, and addresses some of the current challenges Europe and the EU face today: Brexit, immigration, political fragmentation and radicalization, the EU's democratic deficit and foreign policy challenges.
Furthermore, class sessions will introduce participants to the history and trajectory of human rights in Europe questions of collective (national) identity and how it is shaped by current developments.
The program is jointly organized by Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen and Oregon State University (OSU) and conducted by three different teachers: Jan Battke from Tübingen University, Dr. Allison Davis White-Eyes and Dr. Philipp Kneis, both from OSU.
Participation in the Online Summer School will be free of charge this year.
