Barcelona Summer School in Global Politics, Development and Security


Due the COVID-19 situation, the 2020 edition has been cancelled and the summer school will take place in June - July, 2021.

Delivery of Courses 

Each 10 hour course will take place in two hour sessions per day during one week. Each 6 hour course will take in two hour sessions per day during three days. Besides this schedule, there will be time planned for personal interactions with professor where you can take the opportunity to comment your research or project with one of these prime academic figures of the International Relations field.


At the conclusion of the Summer School, participants will receive a certificate for the number of hours attended. All IBEI courses require an average of twice the lecture hours for readings, pre-readings and class preparation. Upon previous request, IBEI faculty can provide an assessment of the courses, and the grade obtained can be included into the certificate, in case students aim to transfer them into ECTS credits.

ECTS Credits

Participants have the opportunity to gain ECTS credits if they are recognized by their universities.

  • 10 hour course:  2 credits = Complete the course + daily assignments / project work
  • 6 hour course: 1 credit = Complete the course + daily assignments / project work

Minimum required: 3 ECTS credits

Social Activities

Social events will be detailed more in advance.
