Registration will start on February 13, 2015.

Location: Volksschule
Language: German

Every year since 1992, the Alpbach Summer School on European Integration, which is run as part of the European Forum Alpbach, has offered a compact yet comprehensive course on the law and policies of the European Community (EC) and of the European Union (EU). The Alpbach Summer School on European Integration welcomes students from Austria and from other countries. Together they enjoy the challenge of an intensive two weeks’ learning experience – in the picturesque setting of Alpbach in the Tyrolean Alps and in a multi-cultural atmosphere. It is designed to assist students in acquiring a basic understanding of the workings of the EC-EU, to equip them with the skills required to analyse socio-economic and legal issues of European integration and, more generally, to introduce them to a culture and practice of animated debate of contemporary problems facing European integration.

Target audience
Students and young graduates of, for instance, (economic) law, business administration, economics and other social and political sciences.
