The European Summer Academy “What follows on 70 Years of Peace? Mutual Understanding and Mutual Trust - Basis for a
Joint Future EU/Germany and Russia - Part 1 with Focus on Germany and the European Union” combines an insight into core aspects of European integration with a particular interest in European-Russian relations. The programme includes lectures, workshops and field trips to European institutions and organisations. The participants from Germany and Russia will improve their proficiency in analysing Europe’s multifaceted dimensions and compare aspects of European and Russian politics,
economy, society and culture in lectures and discussions with renowned scholars and experts.
The working programme of the Summer Academy includes various lectures of experts with different academic as well as
political, economic and societal backgrounds, work in bi-national groups, visits to important European institutions (in Strasbourg, Luxemburg and Saarbrücken) and the participation in a simulation game.
It is also planned that the participants visit St. Petersburg in March 2019.
