7th European Neighbourhood Policy PhD Summer School (College of Europe, Poland)

About the ENP PhD Summer School

The European Neighbourhood Policy PhD Summer School, organised annually by the ENP Chair of the College of Europe in Natolin, is a unique initiative aimed at supporting PhD candidates in developing their research on topics related to the European Union’s foreign policy with a specific focus on the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) and/or related to the EU’s eastern and southern neighbourhoods, i.e. North Africa and the Middle East, Eastern Europe and the South Caucasus.

The 2019 PhD Summer School is directed by the ENP Chair of the College of Europe in Natolin , in collaboration with the EFA and the Chair of Middle East Politics and Society at the University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) , and with the support of the Standing Group on EU Politics of the European Consortium of Political Research (ECPR-SGEU) , and the Trans-European Policy Studies Association (TEPSA).


The aim of the ENP PhD Summer School is to provide PhD students with a unique programme combining lectures by world leading scholars, experts and practitioners, with the opportunity to present their PhD projects and benefit from expert advice and tailor-made feedback. It is destined to familiarize and deepen PhD students’ cross-disciplinary knowledge of European Foreign Policy analysis towards the EU’s southern and eastern neighbours, make them aware of specific regional and domestic dynamics in the EU’s neighbourhood, and equip them with relevant methodological and conceptual tools. In addition, the School helps PhD students and young academics to expand their personal and professional networks and benefit from the many high-level events that take place during the EFA 2019.
