The European Studies Winter School Munich - Berlin - Brussels takes place annually in January. Organised by the Munich International Summer University (MISU) of the LMU Munich, the program includes stays and classes in three different cities in Europe: Munich, Berlin and Brussels. The program is open for students of different academic disciplines from different home countries. All sessions will not only introduce students to the EU but relate these overarching topics to current crisis phenomena in the EU: the EU's sovereign debt crisis, migration crisis, Brexit, and issues in transatlantic relations while also taking into account the EU's relations to other regions of the world. If requested, participants may also attend complementary German Language Classes during their stay in Munich. Moreover, the program includes extracurricular activities to promote students' immersion into European cultures and to meet European decision-takers.
