More than thirty students graduate in online Summer School on EU Policy-Making in 2021

More than thirty international students participated in this year’s edition of the inter-university Summer School on EU Policy-Making. Like last year, this year was also organised online due to social restrictions. This two-week intensive programme was held from 5-16 July 2021.

The summer school attracts students and young professionals who wish to broaden their knowledge of European institutions, European law and the European decision-making process in general. The summer school can be taken as a stand-alone course (5 ECTS) or as part of the Post-Graduate Programme on EU Policy-Making. 

In 2021, the theme of the Summer School was civil rights in today’s EU. Packed with interactive seminars, the programmes focused on civil rights, touching on policy discussions related to human security, migration, anti-discrimination and diversity. An especially valuable part of the programme were sessions with EU practitioners who offered their exclusive insights on various topics.

The Inter-University Summer School on EU Policy-Making is a cooperation between the Institute for European Studies, the Diplomatische Akademie Wien – Vienna School of International Studies Vienna and the University of Vienna. This Jean Monnet Module is made possible with the support of the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, the Flemish Ministry of Education and Training and the Flemish Higher Education Council (VLUHR).
