About the course
The European Union Study Tour & Internship Program (EUST&IP) is an academic activity with a difference. Unlike in previous years, the course will be fully online and research-oriented.
The general topic of the 2021 program will focus on the flagship recovery program, the Next Generation European Union, and the way this program is compatible with the ambitious greening and climate policy project of the European Union (EU). COVID-19 and climate change are challenging the ways we consume, produce and live our lifestyles. This course will take a deep look into the political project of the EU to deal with those challenges.
Students will have the opportunity to work with representatives of EU institutions and European academics. The course takes a strong group-learning approach where students team up and do in-depth research on specific sub-topics. The final product is a comprehensive report for a virtual audience.
The course will be organized as a three-week condensed seminar in May 2021 that ends with a final seminar presentation with experts as commentators.
The program is led by UBC faculty member Kurt Huebner. For more details, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
