The Global Law and Governance (GLG) Summer School is an initiative of the European Public Law Organization (EPLO) located next to the sea in Cape Sounion, 64 Km from the center of Athens, Greece. The program consists of an intensive full week summer program (July 24-28, 2017) with courses and study sessions in English, with a completely research lead and interdisciplinary approach to law and policy. Issues of governance and design of public policy and law are crucial for the future of European and International integration. For this reason, the GLG Summer School will focus on topics related to public policy, politics and international relations, administrative science and legal studies. The Summer School offers an intensive full week study program with courses and study sessions, all of them taught in English, with a truly interdisciplinary approach to law, governance and public policy.

Course leader

The European Public Law Organization (EPLO) is an International Organization with headquarters in Athens, Greece. The EPLO was established on 21 June, 2007. 16 Member States, 4 Public Authorities, and 69 Universities participate in its board of directors.

Target group

The GLG Summer School is primarily addressed to graduate students, but also to excellent undergraduate students from all fields of social sciences such as law, politics, economics, sociology, history, philosophy and international relations, as well as to trainee lawyers, lawyers and officials of international organizations and domestic administrations who might have no background in interdisciplinarity and seek ways to continue their education. The participants will attend classes in the various fields conducted by eminent professors from prestigious Universities from all over the world.

Course aim

The focus of the GLG Summer School is three-fold:
1) To familiarize participants with the most up-to-date issues of Global Law, Governance and Public Policy, including European integration.
2) To promote an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the social sciences. For this reason, the classes will be held by Professors from different fields of social sciences and especially from the fields of Law, Economics, Politics, Philosophy and Sociology. Empirical analysis of law will have a special place in the study programs.
3) To acquaint students with the methodological issues of the respective field. Due to the increase of information sources, it is equally important to know, not only the substance, but also the methodological foundations of the respective field of study.
One of the core ideas of the program is to bring talented young students and scholars into contact with renowned Academics teaching in some of the best Universities around the world. All the courses will be seminar-like classes and colloquia, and the active class-participation will be encouraged.
