The Summer School in Moscow “Global Challenges 2019”focuses on the global challenges, including the political, economic and security issues that shape and reconfigure the architecture of the international system.

During the two last days of the school, 20-21 August 2019, the School will become a venue for the International Students’ conference on burning international global issues. The conference will be supported by the DA Institute of Contemporary International Studies (ICIS) and the EU Delegation in Moscow. The conference will be interwoven in the summer school process and the students will get certificates of participation in it. The conference abstracts will be subsequently published as full-length journal articles. Russian students from different Russian cities will join the international community of the school and together they will gain hands-on experience in diverse areas of interest and build lifelong friendships.

In addition to the excellent educational opportunities, the school gives a chance to discover Russian culture, the city of Moscow and the surrounding countryside as well as to grasp one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, Russian. Russian Language classes are available for students at all levels.

Upon successful completion, the program is worth 6 ECTS credits which may be recognized as part of ongoing studies. The International conference participation certificate mentioned above is an additional evaluation bonus.
