Deadline: 31 August 2021
Open to: all students interested to enhance their knowledge in issues ranging from the EU’s actorness, the ENP and the EaP to cross-border cooperation
Benefits: Free online course
Applications are open for a new online course which seeks to unpack interesting facts, theoretical and practical issues and some of the current challenges the EU’s neighbourhood is experiencing, by and large, and post-Soviet Eastern Europe, in particularly. The program will be embarking on a study journey which departs from a theoretical account of the political, economic and security developments unfolding in the neighbourhood in the past couple of years and reaches practical recommendations on how the EU could strengthen ties with the neighbouring countries.
The European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) has increased the reach and clout of the EU beyond its borders into the immediate vicinity. Yet, the EU vs. non-EU discrepancies at the economic and political level are still very much visible in the eastern borderlands of the EU which comprise areas of land under the jurisdiction of both the EU and the Eastern Partnership (EaP) states. Thus, in line with the 2015 ENP Review and the subsequent 2016 Global Strategy for the EU’s Foreign and Security Policy (EUGS), which both emphasised the urgent need for reconsideration of the EU’s neighbourhood and external instruments, the role of borderland regions has also been seen as prominent for enhancing cooperation between Eastern European EU and non-EU members and for strengthening regional stability and security.
This course addresses all students interested to enhance their knowledge in issues ranging from the EU’s actorness, the ENP and the EaP to cross-border cooperation.
Date: 31 August – 5 October – Online
This MOOC aims at equipping students, young professionals, civil society representatives, public servants, etc. with basic knowledge and practical experience in the (geo)political, economic and social processes occurring in European Union (EU)’s eastern neighbourhood.
For actively participating in the course you will receive an automatic certificate which includes your username, the course name as well as the completed lessons.
