This one-week, full-time, intensive summer school is organized by ACCESS Europe and the VU University Amsterdam law school. ACCESS Europe is a co-operative venture between VU University and the University of Amsterdam, providing a platform for research and debate on Europe, the European Union and its Member States. It has recently been awarded Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence status.
The summer school will consist of a series of interactive seminars with leading scholars in law and political science. The 20-25 participants will explore the theme of "democracy and the financial crisis in Europe" from different angles, with plenty of opportunities to link it to their own research.
