How does the European Union act as a global organisation in today’s world? Understand the main challenges facing the EU and debate with policy makers from institutions such as NATO and European Parliament.
Are the challenges and opportunities of migration correctly understood? How has the role of NATO changed in recent years? What will climate change mean for European countries and for the EU? The Brussels Summer School will ask - and let you debate and discuss - these questions and more. The Summer School broadly addresses the theme of ‘Europe and the World’, which builds upon the academic strengths of the Brussels School of International Studies.
