This intensive short-term program will provide excellent students with an insight into European and Chinese perspectives on the role of Europe and China in Global Politics. Political and social expectations, arising from their roles as global players, will be analyzed within the framework of different theoretical concepts. The modules will provide tools for a deeper understanding of the new global landscape. The exchange of views and ideas will equally include input from German and Chinese academics and students. We therefore invite students from China, Germany and other countries to apply for the best established German-Chinese Summer Program in International Relations.

The future of Ukraine between the EU and Russia looks quite difficult: Hostilities remain and the Minsk process seems to be heading towards a dead end, if it is not dead already. However, the conflict in only one piece of the puzzle. Ukraine’s internal politics and the EU’s reluctance to discuss membership add to the complexity of the current situation. This year’s workshop will therefore address the question of how to deal and live with conflicts as the new normal.
