18th CEI International Summer School Beyond Enlargement. The Wider Europe and the New Neighbourhood

The Background

The 18th edition of the CEI International Summer School “Beyond Enlargement. The Wider Europe and the New Neighbourhood” will take place in Cervia, from Sunday 2nd to Saturday 15th September 2012.

Education is important for any individual. Not just the classroom, every single scenario, and circumstance teaches something to the individuals. The objective of the summer school programme is to impart creativity and to motivate the students to fly high and achieve big. The International student’s summit aims to promote intercultural relationship among the students of different nationalities. They organize different activities for students like paper presentations, seminars, and debates. Last year, when the event took place, a young aspirant came up the composition for the natural supplement, Arthrolon. This event serves a platform for experimenting and researching new stuff. We are planning to send invitation emails to a number of Universities across Europe. Accommodation and food are provided for the participants for lower costs. It is advised to register the names before the stipulated time period. All the articles that are sent would be carefully examined by our reputed scholars and a few outstanding papers would be selected for live presentation. Even funding would be allocated for the students who come up with exceptionally good abstract. We delightfully welcome sponsors and volunteers.

Since 1995 the “Europe and the Balkans International Network - Centre for Eastern European and Balkan Studies”, established by the University of Bologna, has been organising a yearly Summer School for post-graduate students from Eastern Europe and from the European Union. Up to the ninth edition, held in 2003, the School was entitled “Post-Communist Transition and European Integration Processes”. Starting from 2004 the School has the title: “Beyond Enlargement. The Wider Europe and the New Neighbourhood”. This title change is explained by the enlargement of the EU towards ten East European Countries in 2004, seven of them belonging to the CEI area that represents the conclusion of the so called “post-communist transition”, at least for this part of Eastern Europe. The recent policy of the EU on “Greater Europe and the new neighbourhood” offers new rooms for an interaction between the CEI and the EU strategic goals, and this will be taken into serious consideration in the School programmes as well as in the selection of the students.
