European Studies Winter School: Berlin-Munich-Brussels (in-class)
The Winter School offers introductory lectures on the European Union as a preparation for analyzing today’s identity politics in Europe. Participants will therefore not only become experts on the EU’s history, policy-making structure and policy priorities but also discuss how decades of European governance, migration flows, and recent crises phenomena impact on European citizens’ identity formation and political mobilization in societal conflict. In order to understand how identity politics plays out in different EU member states and the transnational European realm, participants will attend lectures and round-table sessions in three different cities over course of the program: Berlin – Munich – Brussels. Besides, participants may apply for and attend German Language Courses online before the program starts as well as during their stay in Munich.
