The University of Bonn invites graduate students and PhD candidates from North America, Middle and Eastern Europe to participate in its annual Transatlantic Summer Academy (TASA). Each year, the four-week-long program focuses on one central issue in the fields of Transatlantic Relations and European Integration.
The 12th Transatlantic Summer Academy, "Weapons of Power and Tools of Management: Alliances in the Past and in the Present" (June 13 - July 9, 2005) will focus on alliance politics. Alliances have always been a central phenomenon in the field of international relations. Yet, despite this obvious observation, alliances as such have not received much attention in the historiography nor in the political analysis of international relations.
TASA provides an intensive interdisciplinary program of lectures, tutorials, panel discussions and briefings in the fields of politics, economics, law, history and culture. Next to the seminar program in Bonn, we will visit German and European institutions in Berlin, Brussels, Luxembourg, and Strasbourg and meet high-ranking officials and politicians. The TASA faculty is made up by a wide range of experts from academia, government, politics, economics, and the media.
Students from North America and Europe with a background in International Relations, European Studies, Political Science, History, Economics, Law, or Cultural Studies can apply. The course is geared to graduate students but also open to exceptionally well-qualified undergraduates. For more information, please consult our website at the web address shown below.
