We`re happy to announce that European Integration Summer School will be offered as a single course ST-420 "Current issues in the European Union" summer 2024.
ST-420 Current Issues / “Differentiated Integration at the Time of the EU’s Polycrisis”
The European Union (EU), which presumably is one the most prominent institutional foundations of regional integration in the world, has been challenges by ‘poly-crisis’ over the past few years, such as the Euro-crisis, the challenge of global migration, the pandemic and the Russian war in Ukraine. As an increasingly differentiated system of integration – in terms of membership, institutions and functional scope, the EU not only affects the lives of more than 450 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, law or public administration with exposure to Europe and the European Union? Then you are most welcome to join our summer school, from which you are certainly going to benefit.
For more than 30 years, the Kristiansand-based European Integration Summer School (EISS) has received national and international recognition as being a place that provides an exceptional learning environment for its students during the beautiful Sørland summer. EISS provides you with the opportunity to engage with top scholars and policy experts.
By the way, 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.
During this long summer school mission, nothing is impossible; we are also planning several exciting social activities, including a tour to the local Bragdøya island and Southern Norway’s famous Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen).
