The European Law & Governance School (www.elgs.eu) a University operated by the EPLO, an International Organization based in Athens Greece, organizes this week-long program (July 22-26, 2019) to discuss the latest developments on Global and European governance covering both constitutional and institutional issues, global administrative law, and issues of soft governance.
It is designed for Master’s level students from all fields of social sciences as well as political scientists, civil servants, lawyers and officials of international organizations and domestic administrations who seek ways to continue their education.
The aim of the Summer School is to foster leadership qualities among mature students and young professionals by opening a cross-border dialogue on current questions of global relevance. Participants will be inspired by – and learn from – high profile speakers who are eminent public figures in politics and academia. At the end of this course, participants will have a profound understanding of the state of play of international (regional and global) politics and law today and will have established a network of contacts with academics and practitioners working in the field.
The program takes place at the EPLO facilities in Sounion Greece, one hour away from Athens by car, very close to the Poseidon temple, overlooking the Aegean Sea. All of the courses will be seminar-like classes and colloquia, and the active class-participation will be encouraged.
