The 18th International Summer University will be held June 23 – July 6, 2013, in Kőszeg, Hungary with the theme “Who is Sovereign? Citizenship in Europe and Beyond.”
The 2013 summer university will include a series of diverse but interconnected themes such as:
- The European Crisis: New Opportunities for Central European Cooperation?
- Creative Cities and City Assemblies: Can these ’New Players’ revitalize Europe within the context of the Danube Strategy?
- The Viability of EU Citizenship: Special focus on Vulnerable Groups in East Central and South Eastern Europe such as the Roma, migrants, women, handicapped people, the aged and youth
- The EU in a Global Context: What Can Europe and Latin-America learn from each other about integration and modernization
The workshops and conferences are sponsored and supported by the Central European Initiative, the International Visegrad Fund, the EU Commission DG Resarch and Innovation, the Jean Monnet Action, the Hungarian Foreign Ministry and the UNESCO.
Participants and speakers come from EU member states, mainly from the larger Danubian region, as well as from outside of Europe. The Central European Initiative has offered 20 scholarships for students coming from CEI countries (see list HERE). Further scholarships are available from ISES and the Hungarian Foreign Ministry. Normal participation cost is 500 EUR.
The summer university will be accompanied by a Central European and Roma Cultural Festival, the ’European Melange’, opened by Her Excellency Katalin Bogyay, the president of the General Assembly of UNESCO. The summer university will be opened by keynote speeches of Central European diplomats and politicians followed by a roundtable discussion that will include all the participants. During the two weeks of programs, Café Bloom will host outstanding public figures, writers, artists and journalists who will talk about their life experience with students and other participants.
