The International Summer School and Simulation Exercise on ‘The Future of EU Economic Governance’ will take place on 2-6 July 2012 at la Fondation Universitaire, Brussels. This event is co-organised by TEPSA and University of Cologne within the framework of the projects THESEUS (www.theseus.uni-koeln.de). The Summer School and Simulation Exercise will start on Monday 2 July 2012 until Friday 6 July 2012. The Summer School will gather about 20 students as to gain insight in and to discuss the broader subject of the Future of EU Economic Governance as well as to participate pro-actively in a simulation game on an EU Council meeting on Economic Governance together with academic experts and decision-makers.
To promote interdisciplinary and international networks among a new generation of Europeans, each year the THESEUS Seminars look for 20 excellent young professionals and researchers to discuss European challenges with high-level experts and decision makers. As in previous years the seminar will feature speakers and high-level experts from international organisations, business, politics, as well as recognised researchers. Iain Begg from the London School of Economics will accompany the seminar as THESEUS Resident Researcher. Beyond own teaching he will animate the debate and advice students on group and individual basis.
The participants will have the possibility to bring in their own academic/professional contributions and to discuss them with the group and the experts. Three days of intensive preparation will be followed by a European Council simulation exercise discussing future scenarios of a European economic government.
