Call for Applications: “CIFE Summer Schools” (CIFE)

Call for applications: This summer, CIFE organises Summer Schools on European topics in North Macedonia, Romania, Georgia and the Czech Republic. The one-week-long courses cover topics such as Security Challenges and Democracy in the Black Sea Region (Tbilisi), The Role of Small States in the EU (Prague), Environmental Challenges (Ohrid) and L’Europe en tant que communauté de droit (Francophone Summer School in Prague).

The summer courses are a part of CIFE’s core activities: the first summer university took place in 1961, in Aoste (Italy). Many followed since, in a variety of countries, in particular in Eastern Europe. CIFE organises these programmes in co-operation with one or several partners in each of the host countries. The summer courses welcome twenty to forty international students, on average. The working languages are French and English. The programmes consist of lectures, seminars, conferences and visits to various relevant institutions that help promote a better understanding of the political and cultural climate and the way of life in the respective host country. At the end of each programme participants may obtain ECTS credits. These summer courses are also an opportunity for our students to meet up with former participants from CIFE’s various programmes in their native countries.


The summer programmes are of short duration, usually a week long, and take place over the summer months in various European countries. Their main objective is to allow students who have completed at least three years of university studies, researchers and young professionals to deepen their knowledge in the fields of European integration and international relations and to increase their understanding of the problems faced by modern society as a consequence of international developments. Topical themes are selected in close collaboration with partners in the host country.
