Jean Monnet International Summer Seminars

The University of Rome Tor Vergata proposes two stimulating modules, spreading over 2 weeks, dedicated to the exploration of the changing nature of the European Union, in an ever-changing world. The seminars will take place in Rome and students will be able to enjoy Rome’s cultural heritage while, at the same time, profiting from the intellectual stimulation of over 40 world class speakers.

Module 1 – EU GOVERNANCE – ROME, 4-8 July 2011, (4 ECTS / 2US) 
This first module will focus on the changes introduced by the Lisbon Treaty in the EU institutions and decision making procedures, also assessing the effectiveness of the new (reduced) rotating presidency, the EU President and the complex relations between these and the EU Commission President and the EU High Representative. It will be an exciting hands-on course analyzing the changes introduced by the Lisbon Treaty both from a theoretical and practical point of view.
The second module will focus on the EU Foreign and Defence Policies under the new Lisbon Treaty. In particular, this year we will assess the degree of convergence / divergence of the Foreign Policy of the Union with that of its major member states and of the world superpowers and emerging powers (US, Russia, China, India, Brazil). As usual, it will have a hands-on approach thanks to the participation of the best scholars and decision makers in the field.

The Summer Seminars address primarily to PhD students and young professionals, but they can be particularly useful also for other graduate students, as well as for people working in NGOs, national administrations, interest groups, medias etc.

Exceptionally skilled senior undergraduate students can be accepted on an individual base. The Jean Monnet Seminars are highly selective and intensive, with 30 teaching hours each week. Admission is subordinated to the proof of previous knowledge about the EU. 

The tuition fee is of 600€ per week (meals and accomodation are not included). The participation to both modules is highly encouraged, the reduced cumulative fee for both modules is 1000€.
