Organised by the Antall József Knowledge Centre
With the establishment of the V4 and CEI Office, the Antall József Knowledge Centre would like to offer a more comprehensive picture of the regions in question by providing a forum for experts and students to meet. Our first international summer university called Antall József Summer School took place in 2013, where the CEE region and the Visegrád Cooperation were examined from many aspects. We would like to continue this tradition of creating an intercultural dialogue between the V4 countries and organise the summer school annually. Seeing that the deepening of relations between the V4 countries can be associated with the name of József Antall, the first freely elected Prime Minister of Hungary, the programme takes place in Budapest.
We aim to provide young participants coming from the V4 countries, the Western Balkan, as well as the Eastern Partnership member states with a cross-border educational programme of high quality that enables them to know more about the most pivotal cooperation of Central Europe. During the twelve days of the event, participants can listen to and attend lectures and seminars in English, which puts under scrutiny the economic, political and cultural relations of the Cooperation, as well as the experiences connected to being an EU member state.
Based on the lectures, the students of the summer school will write an end-of-term test. If the test is passed, those who attended all the lectures and seminars will be given a certificate.
Beyond the transmission of knowledge, our aim is to enhance intercultural dialogue. For this reason, we organise various trips and programmes: Visegrád trip, Multicultural Evening, House of Terror Museum, V4 Game, Film Club, exhibitions, etc.
The 2015 instalment of the Antall József Summer School will heavily focus on the relationship between the Visegrad Countries and the Western Balkan states. The year 2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Dayton Peace Agreement, which put an end to the Balkan Wars.
Place and Time of Event: Budapest, 6 to 17 July 2015
Number of People Admitted: 50
