Call for Applications, Antall József Summer School 2019 in Budapest, Hungary


Deadline: 14 April 2019
Open to: participants from around the world
Venue: 1  –  11 July 2019 in Budapest, Hungary

Description

Organised by the Antall József Knowledge Centre, the Antall József Summer School is a two-week educational programme examining Central Europe and its wider neighbourhood.

The 2019 event will revolve around the role of the Visegrad Countries in regional partnerships, such as the European Union, NATO, and the OSCE. Given the fact that 2019 marks the fifteenth anniversary of the V4 joining the EU and the 70th anniversary of signing the treaty that created NATO, the V4 are presented with the perfect opportunity to think about, rethink, and discuss their role played in such partnerships.

As Slovakia assumes the chairmanship of the OSCE for the year 2019, participants will be able to gain a better understanding of the security cooperation between the Visegrad Countries, as well as Central Asian and North American states, and also the role of the Visegrad Cooperation in this political dialogue.

In addition to the educational programme, the Summer School also provides an avenue to learn more about the Central European culture and values, and other participants’ cultural heritage. For this purpose, museum visits, study trips, and other informal activities are also organised.
