8th ENP PhD Summer School: “In Search of a New Rationale: The EU, the European Neighbourhood Policy in a Post-Brexit Order”

The Summer School was initially scheduled from 28 June to 5 July 2020 at the College of Europe in Natolin, Warsaw.

Due to the change of the format (online), the School began on Monday 29 June and ended in the evening of Friday, 3 July.

The 8th ENP PhD Summer School focused closely on EU foreign policy, broadly conceived, and the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) in its eastern and southern dimensions. Within the framework of EU foreign policy, political, security, economic and social developments in the EU’s neighbourhood countries  featured saliently.

As every year, a group of several PhD students working on European Foreign Policy (with a particular focus on the European Neighbourhood Policy), or on political, security and socio-economic issues in North Africa and the Middle East, Eastern Europe or the South Caucasus, coming from various backgrounds: International Relations, European Studies, Area Studies (i.e. Middle East Politics or East European Politics), Comparative Politics, and EU External Relations Law, came together for almost a week to present their ongoing doctoral projects and learn from the experts coming from academia and the world of practice.

Judging from the feedback received, the Summer School  of 2020 was truly successful!

The ENP Chair would like to sincerely thank all invited guest lecturers for their insightful lectures and invaluable feedback offered to participating PhD students. A big “thank you” and wishes of best luck with their academic careers also to all participants!
