In brief: Intensive 2-week Summer School (1 week in Brussels and 1 in Vienna). It's a crash course in EU Policy Making, with focus in 2019 on analysing human security in the EU! While touching upon all EU policy fields, we will offer participants insights into several aspects of security, including security in its traditional sense (defense) but also from a societal perspective (migration, environment, development).

The Summer School corresponds to 5 ECTS credits.
Organised by: Inter-University programme: Institute for European Studies of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna, in collaboration with the University of Vienna.
Programme: The first week in BRUSSELS emphasises the various decision-making actors and key policy areas, while also looking at issues on governance, participation and legitimacy. Lectures, discussions and exercises facilitated by academics and practitioners are complemented with study visits to EU institutions. The second week in VIENNA builds on the first week and offers in-depth knowledge on EU policy making in a number of fields. Lectures and interactive exchanges with experts are complemented with visits to the UN, the OSCE and the EU Delegation in Vienna.
Throughout the two weeks, the summer school participants will work in small groups on an assignment related to human security. The final result will take the form of a written article, video report, podcast or infographic to be presented to their peers at the end of the summer school programme.
