The annual National Minorities and Border Regions Summer School, an intensive ten-day’s programme of postgraduate-level study in national minorities and border regions studies will be held between 19 and 29 August 2013 in Flensburg, Germany.

The European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI) invites applications for the Summer School from junior scholars and practitioners from all over the world.

The ECMI Summer School aims to set out the conceptual and normative approaches to the study of national minorities in border regions and to explore their different applications in relation to current arrangements across Europe. By the end of the summer school, the students will be able to critically evaluate the successes and failures regarding the accommodation of national minority groups in the border regions of the European states.

Researchers from ECMI will be joined by distinguished international scholars, local politicians and representatives of minority groups from the Danish-German border region.

The course draws on:

  • the effective collaboration between Germany and Denmark in the fields of minority accommodation and cross-border cooperation
  • ECMI’s research and policy consulting expertise, its engagement in conflict resolution, competence development and institution building in Kosovo and Georgia
  • the empirical and normative expertise of the speakers

Moreover, the Summer School promises a comprehensive examination of Europe’s national minorities in border regions.

Upon completion of the Summer School, the participants receive certificates of participation. The Summer School is organised in cooperation with the University of Flensburg.

Application deadline: 15 APRIL 2013 (New deadline: 6 May)
