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 is in the Hague and Amsterdam, which includes for example, visits to the International Criminal Court, Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunal, a tour of the Dutch Parliament, the Anne Frank House and various world-class art museums.
