CfA: Summer School 2021 "Europe and the (Post) COVID-19 World"

The Institute of International Studies, Charles University Prague, will hold this online course from September 13 to September 17, 2021. The application deadline is August 29, 2021.


The key objective of the Online Summer University 2021 is to analyse from various perspectives the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on international relations and Europe's prospects in a time of global socio-political change. What effects has the pandemic had on the EU? Can Europe still be seen as an essential pillar of (liberal) democracy and multilateralism? How have COVID-19 and recent political events influenced the transatlantic relationship? What are the practical implications of the pandemic for EU climate change? How will COVID-19 influence the politics of the U.S. and China? What are the implications of the pandemic for gender equity and technological progress?

This study programme is internationally acknowledged. Successful participants will be given 2 or 4 ECTS credits, depending on their work extent. The Price of the Summer School, 300 Euro, includes the tuition, online reading materials, individualised feedback on the participant’s attendance, and an official certificate confirming attendance.

The course language will be English. The target group are university students currently enrolled in or recently graduated from a Bachelor´s or Master’s degree program, preferably one related to the topic of this year’s Summer University, e. g. Area Studies, International Relations, Political Science and Geopolitics, or another relevant field of study.
