The Politeia Summer School organised by the Center for Democracy Foundation, after seven years since its last course, will be reinvigorated this year to carry on its tradition but this time on a regional level through the project Regional Youth Compact for Europe.
The Western Balkan Summer School Politea will be organised in April 2019 in Danilovgrad, Montenegro.
The first Politeia was held in 1997 and since then almost two thousand young people were empowered to participate actively in social and political processes. Bearing in mind the excellent choice of lecturers, the interactive learning methodology, as well as the highly qualified students, Politeia is today recognised as one of the best informal teaching programs in the region.
Some of the main topics on this year's Politeia will be:
Europe and the Western Balkans - integration and enlargement: Reforms as a domestic task for the countries of the Western Balkans - key challenges, Organising reforms through chapters;
Rule of law and fundamental rights - strategic perspective and implementation of reforms;
Employment and social cohesion: Social dimension of EU integration, EU Youth Programs 2014-2020;
Designing and monitoring public policies: Informal and structural dialogue between young people and the decision-makers.
If you are familiar with the concept of European integration and want to learn more about public policies, become more familiar with the concept of rule of law and social cohesion, we invite you to be one of the participants of the First Regional Politeia! Entries opening soon!
The Western Balkan Summer School Politea is organised in the framework of the project “Regional Youth Compact for Europe” implemented by the Center for Democracy Foundation, European ALDA network and the ALDA – Western Balkans Network for Local Democracy, CRTA, Youth Act and Sodem. This project is funded by the European Union and the Balkan Trust for Democracy, a project of the German Marshall Fund of the United States.
