From 1 to 12 February 2021, the Brussels School of Governance will organise the very first edition of its online Jean Monnet Winter School on EU Policy-Making, in collaboration with its partners the University of Vienna and the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna. This Winter School will build on the long-standing expertise of the similar (offline) Summer School that the Brussels School of Governance and its partners have organised for almost 20 years. Other than being taught online, the second main difference with its 'Summer sibling', is the focus area of the Winter edition, which will be digital rights (competition, freedom of expression, data protection, disinformation resilience), whereas the Summer School focuses on civil rights.
