The European Union (EU) was created in the wake of the Second World War, largely to prevent further mass conflict by focusing on economic and political integration. The EU is a symbol of pan-European cooperation and diplomacy after centuries of ceaseless upheaval. Even amid ‘Euro-scepticism’ the EU continues to inspire citizens all over the world. This programme is ideal for students interested in exploring EU international relations, history and politics, economic and legal issues and the global challenges that it faces today.
The first study trip goes to Belgium. It includes for example, visits to the European Parliament and European Commission and other cultural highlights. The second Study Trip to The Hague and Amsterdam includes, for example, visits to the International Court of Justice, the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals, the Anne Frank House, the Dutch open air museum Zaanse Schans and an activity of choice.
