Summer and Winter Courses

Since 2011, the Europa-Institut successfully offers Summer Courses dealing with the field of European Integration in an interdisciplinary way.


Students get a broad overview into the legal, political and economic basics of the European Union’s system. Moreover, there is the possibility to make friends with people from all over the world and to spend two interesting and eventful weeks in Saarland, Brussels and Strasbourg. The European Summer Course 2013 in cooperation with the ASKO Europa Stiftung and the Europäische Akademie Otzenhausen is themed „The European Union and its Challenges in the 21st Century“. In the years of 2012 and 2011, numerous participants from all over the world got to know the European ambience with topics such as “Analyzing Europe at the Crossroads” and „European Integration from different Perspectives at the Heart of Europe“.


Under the leadership of Director Prof. Dr. Werner Meng, the Europa-Institut organizes in cooperation with the European Center of Economic and Financial Law (ECEFIL) of the Panteion University of Athens/Greece and with the support and promotion of the Centre International de Formation Européenne (CIFE) for the first time the EU-CHINA Summer School themed “China and the EU as Partners – Law, Politics, Economics”.


In January 2015 the Europa-Institut will carry out its first Winter School. Focusing on Human Rights and European Integration, the application procedure will soon be open for young academics from Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine.
