As part of the EU funded project El Hiwar II which since 2013 have been strengthening dialogue and co-operation among key regional actors on Euro-Arab relations, The College of Europe has launched a call for participants for the El-Hiwar Summer School on Euro-Arab Relations that will be held in Bruges (Belgium) from the 15th to the 19th of July 2019

The El-Hiwar Summer School on Euro-Arab Relations is a unique opportunity for participants from the League of Arab States and the European Union member states to learn, connect, debate and exchange views while exploring concrete actions to strengthen Euro- Arab relations. It is open to students, young researchers and professionals or activists that are interested in Euro-Arab relations and how the Euro-Arab dialogue works (origins, current priorities, actors, etc.). Selected participants will develop their skills in advocacy, project design, policy making and policy paper drafting lectures through workshops, roundtable discussions and a study visit to EU institutions.

The summer school will focus on four key areas:

  • Supporting and defending human rights;
  • Cross-cutting themes: gender equality, education and culture, empowering youth, resilient societies, etc.
  • Inclusive and sustainable development;
  • Making the region safer;

Furthermore, El Hiwar II will cover all the costs including the tuition, the transportation from your place of residence to Bruges (including visa costs, when applicable) and full-board accommodation in Bruges for the duration of the Summer School.

Applicants willing to attend El-Hiwar Summer School on Euro-Arab Relations have to draft a short proposal (300 words) putting forward a concrete idea that could strengthen Euro-Arab dialogue .

The event will take place in English but translation and interpretation to/from Arabic is foreseen.

The deadline to fill in the application form is May 2nd 2019.
