Monday, June 27, 2016 - 00:00 to Saturday, July 2, 2016 - 00:00
The BIGSSS Summer School 2016 focuses on the conflict in Ukraine, a political conflict that is unprecedented in Europe at least since the end of the Balkan wars around the turn of the millennium, possibly even since the end of World War II. 
The BIGSSS Summer School 2016 is jointly organized by the Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences (BIGSSS), Bremen's Research Centre for East European Studies, and the Institute of International Relations (IIR) at Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. The BIGSSS Summer School 2016 is fully funded by the Federal Foreign Office through the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
For organizational information on the BIGSSS Summer School 2016 as well as admission requirements and procedures please see the BIGSSS Summer School website.
