The Association “PRAVNIK” together with the partner organization Konrad Adenauer Stiftung will be offering the 2014 International Summer School Sarajevo course on “Lessons from former Yugoslavia for global peace and security.”

International Summer School Sarajevo (ISSS) attracts a truly unique group of young people every year and they all come to Sarajevo to share their experiences. Each year 30 participants from all corners of the world and some 20 countries meet during the ISSS and we aim to provide them with a platform for future networking. ISSS doesn’t only aim to attract current students but also recent graduates and young professionals working on human rights, rule of law and transitional justice in order to blend their unique experiences.


The program encourages applications from graduate and PhD students of law and related disciplines under the age of 35; including a limited number of undergraduate students from the Balkans, the rest of Europe and the United States of America. 

There are three main criteria which will be taken into consideration in the evaluation process:

  1. The program encourages applications from law and political science undergraduate final year students and post graduate students. Basic knowledge and commitment to take part in academic discussions on Rule of Law, Human Rights and Transitional Justice concept is required.
  2. The language of instruction is English; thus all applicants have to demonstrate a strong command of spoken and written English to be able to participate actively in discussions at lectures and workshops.
  3. The association Pravnik recognizes the involvement in CSO (Civil Society Organizations) as an important sign that proves commitment toward democratic development of any society. Thus experience in CSO sector brings an added value to every application.
