CEI International Summer School of Cervia

The CEI International Summer School of Cervia "Beyond Enlargement. The Wider Europe and the New Neighborhood" will take place in Cervia, every September.

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.

52 pics in this gallery

The MA in Governance and Politics of European Integration (GPIE), which was launched in November 2002 and ended in October 2003 was organised by the University of Bologna and was financed by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The aim of the Master was to give to the students highly- specialising, post- graduate courses in which they could analyse the main politics, challenges, difficulties and problems connected with the Enlargement of EU.

In particular, the MA was directed to young generations – hence just- graduated students, or young professionals - coming from South- eastern and Balkan Europe who will have to keep on the process of post- communist transition and of consolidation of market economy that are still going on in their countries.
