European Integration Summer School (EISS) 2022

Although it has recently been challenged by a series of crises, such as the ongoing pandemic, the European Union (EU), which presumably is the most prominent institutional foundation of regional integration in Europe, still remains of paramount importance in several policy areas at the global stage. The EU clearly is not a superpower, but it certainly ranks as one of the most important actors on the global stage. The EU not only affects the lives of more than 500 million inhabitants living within its territory, but it also has a significant impact on millions of people living outside of its borders. How can we study the European Union as a prime organization of Europe’s contemporary political order? 

Are you aspiring for a career in international business or public administration with exposure to Europe and the European Union? Then you are most welcome at EISS, and you certainly will benefit from our summer school.

For more than 30 years, EISS has received national and international recognition as being a place that provides an exceptional learning environment for its students. EISS provides you with the opportunity to catch up with top scholars and experts. In 2020, the UiA Department of Political Science and Management was awarded a prestigious Jean Monnet Center of Excellence (JMCoE) by the European Commission as a recognition of its strength and competence in both research and teaching in the field of European Studies.

What will you gain?

In short, you will:

  • deepen your knowledge on a wide range of issues pertaining to European integration
  • add an international dimension to your specific field of training (e.g. in law, public administration or economics)
  • engage with top scholars and experts in a very personal way

If you aspire for a career in business or public administration and will be exposed to Europe and the European Union, then you are most certainly going to benefit from our Summer School.
