The EU seminar is an opportunity for students of the MA International Relations/European Union Studies to meet experts from EU and international institutions and learn more about the current challenges the EU is facing.
The EU Seminar brings to Leiden practitioners, officials of EU institutions, representatives of governments and non-governmental organisations, journalists and activists whose work is in some way related to the EU. These seminars complement our curriculum by highlighting issues and debates that are of current interest for the Union. They also offer students first-hand insights into the day-to-day work of people specializing in EU affairs in different sectors and institutions and a better understanding of the career paths that brought them there.
EU Seminars are organized by the EUS track of MA IR programme, in cooperation with Huis van Europa, EU Parliament representative office in The Hague and the Alumni Relations Office at Leiden University Faculty of Humanities. In addition to regular talks by practitioners, under the umbrella of EU seminar we also organize occasional debates, round tables, alumni gatherings and study visits.
