At the start of the Academic Year 2017-2018, the College of Europe and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University (Medford, MA), launch their new joint Master of Arts in Transatlantic Affairs (MATA) programme. The two-year MATA programme combines postgraduate studies at both university institutions and a high-level internship experience in either Europe or the US. It is aimed at training a new generation of experts who can assume leadership functions in transatlantic affairs.
To mark the occasion, the College of Europe kindly invites you to two interlinked events organised on 28 and 29 September 2017 in Bruges:
Round Table “Transatlantic Relations in Challenging Times”, Thursday, 28 September 2017, College of Europe, Bruges, Belgium
We celebrate the start of the programme with a round table (programme) of European and US academics and policy-makers, who will discuss on the present and future of transatlantic relations. The round table is followed by a reception.
International Conference: “A New Order or No Order? Continuity and Discontinuity in the EU-China-US Relationship“, Friday, 29 September 2017, College of Europe, Bruges, Belgium
To further discuss US-EU relations in the broader context of changing global politics, and especially their interrelations with China, the Department of EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies and its EU-China Research Centre at the College of Europe organise a one-day conference (programme) discussing the extent to which ongoing changes in the world provide fundamental discontinuities in the EU-China-US triangle. The conference will focus on the fields of trade and investment, foreign and security policy, and climate and energy policy.
