The Centre for Small State Studies at the University of Iceland offers an intensive two week summer course sponsored by an Erasmus+ grant, focusing on opportunities and challenges of small European states in the 21st century. The course brings together many of the leading scholars in the field of small state studies who have substantial knowledge in various diverse disciplines such as political science, economics, history, public policy and sociology. This offers an innovative and exciting forum to debate contemporary issues concerning small states.
The 2016 Small States Summer School will be held from Monday 20 June to Saturday July 2.
The summer school, titled Small States in Europe: Opportunities and Challenges, is organized around four interlinked pillars each identifying a specific set of challenges and opportunities for small states. The Centre for Small State Studies at the University of Iceland organizes the Summer School in cooperation with five other universities who are leaders in the field of small state studies: The University of Copenhagen, Vilnius University, Tallinn University of Technology, University of St. Andrews and the University of Malta. The Centre for Small State Studies is run under the auspices of the Institute of International Affairs at the University of Iceland.
