Identity Politics in Europe
The European Studies Summer and Winter Schools offer 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 online or in-person in three different cities.
