Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies, University of Helsinki and Free University of Berlin
invite you to
Autumn School “RUSSIA AND EASTERN EUROPE TOWARDS 2030”
23 - 28 October 2017 in Helsinki, Finland
Autumn School provides students with knowledge about the current and future development in Russia and Eastern Europe. The programme of the autumn school is closely connected to the programme of the 17th Annual Aleksanteri Conference. Students will attend the conference plenary sessions and panels alongside with the individual and group work of the Autumn School. The programme awards 5 ECTS.
The aim of the Aleksanteri Conference and the Autumn School is to examine where Russia and Eastern Europe will be in 2030. A few years ago, ‘emerging powers’, including Russia, seemed to be on a path to experiencing strong economic growth, delivering well-being to their citizens, shaping global cultural trends, and ultimately challenging the prevailing balance of power. Despite the Aleksanteri Conference will focus on Russia, other former Eastern European countries will be discussed in various sessions.
The Autumn School is open to MA students and advanced BA students of the above mentioned universities.
The application deadline is 7 June 2017.
There are no tuition fees. Accommodation will be booked and covered by the University of Helsinki. Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies offers number of scholarships to cover participants travelling costs.
