Our teaching portfolio comprises introductory lectures to International Relations and Politics in the European Union as well as specialized seminars on a wide range of topics, including “Cyber Security,” “EU Integration in Times of Crises,” “IO Blame Games,” “The EU as an Actor in World Politics,” “Putin, Trump and Post-Truth: Understanding the Crisis of Liberal World Order”, and “War, Change and Order in World Politics.” Moreover, we support the project group National Model United Nations (NMUN), the most prestigious academic simulation of the United Nations, which takes place every year in New York City.
