Aim & Methods

In this course we try to bring together students that are likely to have a future career within or connected with the public domain (and lecturers and researchers) from the so called ‘old EU’ (especially the Netherlands), new and candidate member states of the EU and from the so called new neighbours. The aim is to share and to discuss our knowledge and perspectives on the challenges of Europe. The intensive international part of the course in Dubrovnik includes different longer and shorter plenary presentations by resource persons from different countries, workshop sessions with presentations by participants, forum debates, simulation games, future creating workshops, and so on. As lecturers and participants stay in the same hotel, discussions will be extended during evening hours within an informal setting.
