Academic Program

Identity Politics in Europe

The European Studies Summer offers introductory lectures on the European Union as a preparation for analysing contemporary identity politics in Europe. Participants will acquire expertise on both the EU's history, policy-making processes and policy priorities and discuss how decades of European governance, migration flows, recent crises, and the rise of populist parties impact on European citizens' identity formation, political mobilization and societal conflict. In order to understand how identity politics plays out in different EU member states and the transnational European realm, participants will attend lectures and round-table sessions in two different cities (Munich and Vienna).
