Event description
Challenges ahead for the European Union New leadership and New approaches

About this Event

Three years after the Brexit vote and still in very uncertain times, the EU with its new leadership in place needs to tackle the old and new challenges. While the status of the rules-based global order remains unclear, the EU has continued to be a clear leader in promoting ordered international relations and has continued to pursue new arrangements for European integration. In parallel and at times in concert, China has begun to outline its own version of a rules-based global order.

This summer school on the EU seeks to bring out the issues faced in contemporary Europe and address their consequences and possible solutions. Increasingly, the issues confronting the EU are shared with other nations, as the EUR leaders respond to, and seek to shape, a globalising world in which relationships with countries in other parts of the world matter. Australia has a stake in these matters not only in the current negotiations for a Trade Agreement with the EU but also in working with a potentially separate UK. What might all this mean for our region?

The 2020 European Studies Summer School offers a unique opportunity to engage with diverse expert speakers on topics that complement secondary school curricula. There will be 2 days of interaction at the Immigration Museum.

A two-day intensive program for teachers of:

  • History
  • Global/ international politics
  • Economics
  • European languages

Day 1: The EU and the rules-based global order in 2020

Day 2: Directions for a future EU and its relationship with Australia
