Summer School in Global Politics, Development and Security
The summer school will take place from June 27 to July 1, 2016.
The IBEI Summer School is a programme designed for graduate students from home and abroad who have an interest in advancing their knowledge of international security, international development and global politics issues. The objective is to offer different short courses on significant topics, taught by experts of international prestige. The School will enable participants to broadly discuss - in and out the classroom - current developments in world politics in the light of core social-science and IR theories and perspectives. A social programme for networking, including visits to different Barcelona-based international organizations and NGOs and will be also available to participants.
The direction and coordination of the summer school will be provided by Prof. Pere Vilanova and Prof. Martin Shaw.
