Summer Schools and Summer Academies at the GSI


Summer School 2017 „Forced Migration“ (09.-12.10.2017)

The global dimension of forced migration since 2015 causes huge challenges for European states. Civil wars, terrorism and the lack of future prospects force people to flee to Europe. Finally arrived here, not just questions of a sustainable integration but also national egoisms and quota systems are on the political and media agenda.

Due to the political relevance but also the social and scientific dimension „Forced Migration“ will be the central topic of the Summer School 2017 at the Faculty of Social Science of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich.

The Geschwister-Scholl-Institute (GSI) is one of the leading political science institutes in Germany. The wide range of courses at the GSI, along with the specialization modules on political theory and political systems, allows to deepen one’s knowledge of International Relations and European Politics. The teaching units at the GSI offer seminars on a regular basis, which illuminate the European Union from the different perspectives of the political science disciplines.

In the context of this core competence and efforts to promote international academic networking, Professor Dr. Dr. h.c. Weidenfeld (Center for Applied Policy Research / CAP) and Professor Dr. Goetz (Chair of Political Systems and European Integration) developed appealing summer academies on European Studies.
