Title: Game of Thrones between East and West - Understanding the New Cultural, Political and Economic Realities

Date: 27th June – 1st July 2022 (Online from Kőszeg, Hungary)

Application deadline: June 12, 2022

As new geopolitical realities are producing multiple security threats and fears of new armed conflicts throughout the world, collaboration on other global problems that are posing existential threats to humanity is increasingly challenging. The 27th International Summer University focuses on the transformations of geospace and examines how shifts of power on a global level influence politics, economy, ecology, technology, and culture. Where are the new battlefields for the redefinition of global geopolitical order? Which uniting and dividing factors are shaping up the politics of today? How do history and memory shape the future?


The Summer University will be organized around these main themes:

  • Russia and the New Global (Dis)Order
  • Human Security and Migrations in a New Geopolitical Context
  • Power & Discourse: Information Wars, Algorithmic & Democracy
  • Between Germany and Russia: The Future of Enlargement + V4
  • Fragmenting or Banding Together? Future Scenarios for the Western Balkans
  • Global Crises and Sustainable Futures?
  • Memory in Transition
  • Education for the Future
