The first two days the interactive lectures will cover national diversity and secularization, the reflection of migration, Central European history and law. Students work on different projects in mini-teams to debate, examine and explore the important challenges the Central Europeans face today.

Another day of this course covers the development of the country in the heart of Europe. The features of the course are designed as a unique insight into Czech history and politics throughout several periods of time in the context of European history.

The last two days of first week are meant for students with different academic backgrounds but with strong interest in Czechoslovak, and Central European political developments during and after the democratic revolutions 1989. We hope that students from different countries will be encouraged and will feel free to actively participate in debates and also enrich these debates with their experience.
