The European Union, Trump and China: Whose World Order? Where Does Australia Stand? Two years after the Brexit vote and Trump’s victory in the race for the White House, what is the status of the rules-based global order.
This summer school on the EU seeks to bring out the issues faced in contemporary Europe and address their consequences and possible solutions. Increasingly, the issues confronting the EU are shared with other nations, as the EU leaders respond to, and seek to shape, a globalising world in which relationships with countries in other parts of the world matter. Australia has a stake in these matters not only in the current negotiations for a Trade Agreement with the EU but also in working with a potentially separate UK. What might all of this mean for our region?
A TWO-DAY INTENSIVE PROGRAM FOR TEACHERS OF:
- Global/international politics
- Social and cultural studies
- European languages
The 2019 European Studies Summer School offers a unique opportunity to engage with diverse expert speakers on topics that complement secondary school curricula. There will be 2 days of interaction at the Immigration Museum, supported by access to online resources and seminars to follow up on our conversations.
Day 1: The EU and the rules-based global order in 2019
Day 2: Directions for a future EU and its relationship with Australia
Detailed program available late 2018
- A crash course in European institutions: the who, what and where of how the EU operates
- What does the EU stand for in the new world? How does it relate to China? What will the UK do?
- How will Australia manage its relationships with the EU and with the United Kingdom?
The program features interactive sessions with senior academics and practitioners, an interdisciplinary approach, and multiple case studies which can support learning in classroom settings.
Participation will involve a small fee of $66 for the two days to assist in covering the necessary costs involved, including a copy of the new book edited by Bruno Mascitelli and Bruce Wilson (2018) ‘So Distant, So Close’: Australia and the European Union in the 21st Century.
