The courses and workshops
The courses will approach subjects related to the EU enlargement towards the Western Balkans, as follows:

  • Bringing security all over Europe
  • The EU Neighbourhood Policy
  • The price of the EU Enlargement and the Balkans integration
  • The clash of civilisation: the rise of the EUropean citizen

The courses are going to be organised each day and each group of students will attend all the courses by rotation. The course agenda will comprise information related to the EU history, economy and policies, information about the candidate and potential candidate countries (economic, political and cultural aspects) and available funds for pre-accessing countries. The teachers will present case studies about the countries integrated in EU in the last 2 waves of enlargement. The teaching methods will be interactive and will consist of lecturing, presentation of case studies and role games. The students from Western Balkans will have the opportunity to present movies and photos from their countries.

The workshops will have artistic themes:

  • Representative photos (Europe in images!)
  • Cooking traditional plats (Europe in the kitchen!)
  • Creating collages, traditional dolls and houses from materials (Traditions as part of Europe!)
