Current Seasonal Schools


Global Politics Summer and Fall Schools

Each year the Center for Global Politics carries out up to 5 seasonal and summer schools in different cities around the world. The Seasonal Schools are planned and organized in close cooperation with our partner universities on site and, in some cases, in cooperation with German political foundations as well. The curriculum encompasses varying topics reflecting current developments and debates in global politics. In addition to covering issues specific to the respective host countries and their regions, the courses address the following topics:

  • New Approaches to Global Politics
  • The European Union – Current Trends and Challenges (esp. integration, external relations, governance, migration)
  • Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation processes
  • Civil Society Media and International Politics
  • Global City Regions

Here you can find an example schedule for one of our schools. We have prepared an exciting program for our participants where we combine intensive course modules with a cultural immersion.
