This highly prestigious seminar, taking place in Rome, is aiming to evaluate the level of European integration in member states and the impact on the EU in the world.

The first week will focus on the EU’s domestic policies, with particular attention paid to the consequences of the 2004 and 2007 enlargements and on the status of the Constitutional Treaty.

The second week will be dedicated to the role of the EU in the world. Particular emphasis will be put on the transatlantic relations; the impact of the recent US legislative elections, the position of the EU in the Middle East peace process and the rise of Asia as a major forceon the business world.

The seminar will be held by well known international speakers such as: Prof. Giuliano Amato, Italian Minister of Home Affairs and former Vice President of the European Convention; Andrew Moravcsik, Professor, Princeton University; Charis Xirouchakis, Head of the Public Relations of the Council of EU Ministers; Leopoldo Nuti, Professor, University of Rome 3; Geoffrey Miller, New York University; Philomena Murray, Jean Monnet Chair University of Melbourne Australia; Martin Holland, Jean Monnet Chair University of Canterbury New Zeland; Amy Verdun, Jean Monnet Chair University of Victoria Canada; Jean-Victor Louis, Emeritus Professor, ULB.

More then 30 others speakers including diplomats, academicians, journalists andEU officials will take part in the event.

Participation is open to young people having shown excellent skills in their field of study/ work.

The courses are designed to match the interests of both graduate students (application of exceptionally skilled senior undergraduate will be considered on an individual basis) and young professionals who wish to improve their knowledge of the EU.
