IBEI Summer Schools 2012
The 2012 IBEI Summer Schools will be held in July. The aim of the IBEI summer schools is to offer short courses (10 hours) on matters of major interest within the sphere of international relations and international economic politics. The courses are given by teachers with an international reputation and are aimed at graduate students, teachers and researchers in the areas of political science, economics, international relations and international studies who are interested in learning and understanding at first hand the latest advances in research. The IEMed and the Union for the Mediterranean offer scholarships for attending this third edition of the Summer School of the Mediterranean.
IBEI in the Social Networks
IBEI has just began to participate in the social networks. The Institute has created a Facebook page that regularly reports the activities that take place at the Institute as well as other events or any other information that may be useful for the community. It has also a Twitter account @IBEI , which petends, above all, to disseminate its research activities, initiatives and findings.
