Since February last year, East-West political relations have changed. The war in Ukraine and the possibility of a global conflict have captured the attention of more than just politicians. The consequences have already affected many people around the world - emotionally, economically and humanly.
• What are the prospective scenarios for the further development of political relations not only between the EU and Russia but also other global players?
• Have the international organizations existing to ensure peace and humanitarian protection failed?
• What role can NGOs and civil society play in protecting the common values of peace, democracy and humanity?
• And what can we do to learn from the past in order to better resolve this situation without provoking a global conflict?
These are all highly relevant questions that cannot be easily answered, but can be discussed. The course aims to students and young professionals with a platform for open and academic discussion and exchange of opinions on the current situation in Russia from a global perspective.
The course combines lectures (including many discussion sessions) with workshops, simulation games of decision-making processes and excursions to various European institutions.
Please apply by 10 May 2023 by sending a CV and a letter of motivation in English (A4 page, approx. 350 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The course is free of charge. The programme fee, an excursion to Strasbourg, full board (all meals) and accommodation in double rooms will be fully covered by the organisers.
Participants are responsible for their own travel costs.
