The summer school is aiming to introduce students and young academics to the new challenges for European Integration due to the Russo-Ukrainian War and its implications for the European Union and the Western Balkans. A special emphasis will be put on the EU accession process and the EU neighbourhood policy. The participants should be made more aware of the topic and enabled to recognise deficiencies and defuse situations through knowledge of the legal framework, and in particular to understand the complexity of the EU accession process. Moreover, interactive trainings and workshop sessions should foster the discussion among the participants. The program will be delivered in English with a selection of the following topics (preliminary list, changes will be possible): Russo-Ukrainian war, development, history and reasons; International Public Law in the times of war; Refugees from Ukraine in Europe; Fighting War Crimes with International Criminal Law; Reactions of the European Union – Supporting Ukraine, Sanctioning Russia; EU Enlargement Policy: Who´s next?; A new strategy for the EU Neighborhood Policy; NATO or European Union: Developing an European Security strategy; Mobility of people and goods: Food and worker markets; How to secure the energy supply; We waited longer: conditionality and fairness in the accession process; New models for European Integration.
