The Institute for Comparative Federalism of Eurac Research, the Faculty of Law and the School of Political Science and Sociology of the University of Innsbruck announces a new common cross-border project. This program, called The Winter School on Federalism and Governance, was initially created in 2010, but has undergone multiple revisions. It takes place under the Secretary General of the Council of Europe.
This school analyzes the interaction of federalism, regionalism, and multilevel governance from both political and legal perspectives. Each edition of the program allows students to focus on specific topics from the detailed approach of scholars, practitioners, and political scientists.
Students will examine the success and risk factors of multilevel governance systems through a wide range of case studies regarding the European Union, multinational states, and Eastern Europe. Students will study different policy fields such as financial relations and environmental policies.
The Institute for Comparative Federalism conducts comparative legal studies and applied research on governance in Europe and throughout the rest of the world. It is a component of Eurac Research, which conducts innovative research and training in Italy.
The next edition of the Winter School will be held from February 5th to 16th, 2018, and focuses on federalism in the making. It will be held in Innsbruck Austria, and Bolzano, Italy. Innsbruck is well known for Alpine scenery and architectural heritage. Students will enjoy a bustling university town and many winter sports. Bolzano is rich in culture and heritage, as well as architecture. Students will spend the two weeks of the winter school in lectures and discussion sessions, workshops, and study visits. They will be given multiple opportunities for discussion with leading experts on multilevel governance.
All international students, whether young researchers, academics, post-doctoral and post-graduate students, or civil servants, are invited to apply. Applicants are accepted from August until October 26, 2017. Scholarships are available for qualified students. Students must attend both weeks of the program.
