European Studies Program “Approaching the European Union”


Date is to be announced

We are pleased to welcome students from Chulalangkorn University to the Munich International Summer University (MISU) in Germany.

The European Studies Program takes place under the patronage of the Center for Applied Policy Research (C.A.P.) at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU Munich). C.A.P. is a university-based institution for political advising and research on European affairs.

The European Union is the most prominent example on how regional integration works. For 28 European states, supanational policy-making determines not only their political and economic systems; the global challenges of the 21st century illustrate the limitations of power of individual governments, thus requiring common approaches. As a consequence, integration is also considered important for European security policy. The objective of this summer academy is to provide students with a broad understanding of the historical development, the economic, societal, political and philosophical dimensions of the European integration process.

Furthermore, the course analyses Europe's role as an international political and economical factor and its relations with different countries and regions of the world. Based on an interdisciplinary approach, the course combines different methodologies such as lectures, round-table discussions, group-work and students' presentations along with excursions to meet politicians as well as professionals.

In addition to the academy, we encourage you to engage in a vibrant international student life on the campus of LMU Munich.
