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.
