After your second semester, you will attend a summer school focusing on one challenging topic of crisis management. The summer school lasts about eight days and the programme is highly interactive. It will take place either in Jena or abroad – in case of the latter we will co-organise it with renowned partners who offer expertise that complement ours. And we will even cover most of the costs.

The topics and activities change every year. We are currently considering the following options:

  • Simulations of real-world crises, such as negotiations on how to solve the conflict in Eastern Ukraine or how to divide the water in the Nile basin
  • Workshops on topics such as ethical challenges in peace and conflict, post-conflict reconciliation and secessionist conflicts, including guest lectures, working groups and other highlights
  • Joint summer schools with the European Centre for Minority Issues (Link) on the protection of minorities in Europe and beyond and with a partner organisation in Brussels with direct access to the European Union and NATO on topics such as the worldwide peace support missions of both organisations
  • Participation in summer schools of other organisations such as the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE, Link)
