Ecole d'été

Bernheim Joint Summer School on Security, Peace and Conflicts



Jointly organized by the Université libre de Bruxelles, the University of Kent, the Groupe de recherche et d'information sur la paix (GRIP), the Université Catholique de Louvain and the Université de Genève

This Summer School will provide participants with the opportunity to engage with eminent researchers and specialists in these subjects. A different programme will be offered every year, providing in-depth knowledge of a specific situation as well as a better understanding of issues pertaining more generally to peace, conflict and security.

This programme is designed to be interactive and will include lectures, research opportunities and simulation games. Participants will be exposed to a variety of methodological approaches and tools. Interactive courses, tutorials, workshops and other innovative methods will be at the core of the programme. Professionals and academics will also reflect upon their own research and practice at a roundtable discussion and will further enhance the networking benefits of the Summer School.
