History of the ISU (1996 - 2020)
Since 1996 the international summer university has been a great opportunity for experts, activists, practitioners, policymakers, researchers, social scientists, and students to meet and discuss contemporary challenges and international cooperation.
The International Summer University has been focused on the creation, accumulation, and dissemination of new knowledge. Through a multidisciplinary approach, we will engage with the complex relationship between political, ideological, economic, and cultural dynamics of integration and disintegration in Europe. Politicians, social scientists, practitioners, cultural heritage experts, and artists will ensure an exciting experience for participants. We invited students to apply who are interested in local, national, regional, and transnational processes in a diverse and changing European space.
