Summer School:

Conflict Resolution in the European Neighbourhood
The South Caucasus from Comparative Perspective

The summer school is geared towards young researchers of the South
Caucasus as the future opinion-makers and decision-makers of the

function between state institutions, international actors and societal
organisations in the transformation processes and conflict management
in the region. In order to support these processes the summer school
offers the opportunity to acquire and discuss the newest findings of
peace, conflict, transformation and European studies with
international experts. Besides roundtable discussions and working
groups, the programme includes interactive training such as scenario
analysis. The improvement of methodical and presentation skills is
also addressed.
Altogether, the following four subject areas will be covered:

– Conflict and Conflict Transformation
– The Caucasus and Europe
– Europeanization and European Neighbourhood Policy
– Methods of Social Science, with a special emphasis on comparative
case studies

Science / Chair of International Relations and Development Policy, the
