The Summer School is a collaboration between the European University Institute’s School of Transnational Governance and the Florence School of Advanced Studies for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogues (FSD) . The one-week course will provide mid-career professionals with deeper understanding about religion in society through interactive analyses of case studies and encounters with religious leaders and practitioners of the Abrahamic religions living in Europe. The Summer School is open to qualified academics and practitioners, together with religious leaders of the Abrahamic religions living in Europe and experts of interreligious dialogue. The sessions will involve group work focussed on selected case studies, and plenary sessions consisting of lectures and debates with religious leaders, professors and experts. The course will enhance participants’ understanding of how to develop and sustain inclusive institutions and whilst the interactive learning experience will expose participants to new perspectives on religion and the state, focusing their attention on positive and inclusive views of religion. Participants will be challenged to apply their learning to real-life scenarios where, in a protected environment, they will be driven to take risks and find solutions “outside the box”.
On 6 September, the Summer School will host an open debate on ‘What Is the Problem with Religion? A New Approach for an Inclusive Society”. The debate will take place as part of the "Towards MED", preparatory meetings aiming at deepening and widening some of the topics which will be discussed during the fourth edition of Rome MED dialogues, promoted by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and ISPI (Italian Institute for International Political Studies) in Rome.

Fees: 1,700 € (10% reduction for early registrations, valid until 29 June 2018).

A discount of 25% will be applied to the charges for international European and national civil servants, as well as to members of the NGOs.

Full or partial fee-waivers will be available on merit or needs basis.

The fees cover the cost of the course as well as coffee and lunch breaks. Travel and hotel costs are not included in the fees.
