Upcoming Summer School on Populism (July 2020)
The summer school will take place in the framework of the Jean Monnet Module ‘European Union Law and Governance in Populist Times.’ The Summer School will look at populism and its manifestations from perspectives of theory, law and political science. Those who participate in the Summer School will gain a good understanding of the definitional, theoretical and contextual frameworks of populism and its manifestations, an in-depth understanding of the EU’s toolbox in tackling effects of right-wing populism as these are witnessed today in Europe, including deterioration of the rule of law, discriminatory policies and hate speech. The Summer School will also include sessions on the socio-legal and political significance of protecting social and economic rights in times of crisis, the link between financial and social crises and the rise of both right and left wing populism in Europe in the current era.
The Summer School will employ a mélange of formal and non-formal educational methodology, placing the learner at the epicenter of the learning process. It will include a selection of lectures as well as interactive workshops lead by imminent experts.
PhD students, early career researchers, advanced students in fields such as law, European Studies, sociology, politics, policy makers, members of civil society, stakeholders, professionals.
