The program will equip students with theoretical and methodological tools to address the political, cultural, and societal challenges currently faced by Europe and the international community.

The two weeks course combine lectures, seminars, case study analysis, roundtables, and interactive games. It provides students with an overview of both external and internal challenges faced by European democracies and their main actors (political leaders, institutions, and citizens). Students will build real world skills and gain exposure to critical issues, questions, and state-of-the-art thinking on relevant topics. At the end of the course students will be able to:

  • Orient themselves in the field of Euro-Mediterranean studies from different disciplinary perspectives and thus apply a critical and analytical approach to the study of the MENA area and its relations with Europe
  • Understand the diplomatic actions of the central authority of the Catholic Church
  • Understand Euro-Asian relations, with particular emphasis to those between China and Europe (and EU)
  • Apply the knowledge and information gained to business cases and to solve business problems
  • Understand the evolution of the party system, political-electoral competition, and electoral behavior in Europe over the past decades, with a specific focus on the disruptive changes that have occurred in recent years
