Online Fall School

"Divided in Diversity" - The European Union in Crisis?

November 30 - December 23, 2020

After the tremendous success of our IES Online Summer School, for the first time ever we will also offer an Online Fall School in 2020. The program provides an overview of the historical, cultural and political framework of European integration, and addresses 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.

We are looking forward to welcoming our students from all over the world online!
