THE SUMMER SCHOOL AT A GLANCE

The school will focus on Russia’s global roleAfter allRussia is constantly in the news – but do we know much about its actual inner workings and outer ambitions? Is it still ‘a riddle, wrapped in a mysteryinside an enigma’, as Churchill famously saidor perhaps 'a normal country', as some suggested after the fall of CommunismWe will discuss Russian politicsthe historical forces shaping it as well as current trendsWe will explore Russia’s role in the post-Soviet region and in the worldinterrogating its great power ambitions and tough political manoeuvering as well as its role in the international institutions. We will talk about big business in Russia and the ways it is integrated into the global economy. Delving deeper still, we will look into the attitudes and values of the Russian population, comparing it regionally and internationally. You will learn about Russia – but you will also deepen your knowledge of key political, economic and sociological concepts through the discussions of the Russian case.

PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

Each topic we discuss at the summer school will be covered through a morning session and an afternoon sessionThe morning session will be a lecture on the topic delivered by one of our instructors. Our instructors are members of the Faculty of International Relations and Politics and hold key expertise in Russian studies. Afternoon sessions will vary. Some of them will be seminars focused on zooming in to the topics covered in the morning session. Others will be exciting activities tailored to connect to the topic, like trips to local businesses, tours to sport facilities, and film screenings. Last but not least, our programme will include a two-day educational retreat to Zelenogorsk, at the Bay of Finland.
