Summer School “Reflecting Ethnicity in Legal Education"

The Summer School “Reflecting Ethnicity in Legal Education” will take place at the seaside of Albania (specific venue t.b.c., most probably in Vlora or Durres), from 3 to 10 of September 2017.

It will be organized within the project “Reflecting ethnic heterogeneity and tolerance towards national minorities in the legal education in South East Europe and Germany” of the SEELS Network and the Europa-Institut of Saarland University (Germany), financially supported by DAAD and the Federal Foreign Office of Germany.

The Summer School, as well as the project, is envisaged as a continuation of the established SEE EU Law Net under which multiple Summer Schools were held in the past.


The program of the Summer School is constructed in such manner that it is going to improve the participants’ knowledge on the (individual and collective) rights of ethnic minorities, with special focus on the region of South East Europe and Germany.


The summer school will deal with the following topics:

  • Concept of Multiculturalism and right of participation
  • International and regional regimes for the protection of minorities
    (e.g. OECD, UNHCR, ECHR, EU)
  • Anti-Discrimination as an adequate framework for minority protection?
  • Hate Crime – Hate Speech...


The lectures will be held by distinguished lecturers from Germany and the Western Balkans.

Take this opportunity and apply for the Summer School 2017!
