Summer School Program

The summer school will consist of three two-hour classroom sessions on most days, followed by visits to BiH government ministries, international organizations, NGOs, a two-day-long field visit to Herzegovina, and a three-day-long field visit to the Srebrenica Memorial Centre (Potocari) and a post-genocide community (the village of Klotjevac) in Eastern Bosnia.


Each classroom session will be a mixture of lecture presentations and interactive discussions. The field trips will provide the participants with the opportunity to experience learning beyond the classroom, in a community setting, and obtain more intensive hands-on practice with methods discussed during the sessions. Attendance and active participation in all activities is compulsory during the whole summer school. In addition, all participants will be required to work on their own research papers throughout the summer school and submit them at the end of the program. To ensure a common ground for the in-class discussions, participants are required to complete the required readings before the sessions (to be provided electronically by the lecturers).


The certificate of successful completion of the Summer School will be issued upon accomplishing the assessment task comprising of:


-           Attending the sessions and field trips;


-           Active participation during class sessions and field trips; and


-           Research paper for submission or a reflexive piece dealing with one or more aspects of the Summer School.



The language of instruction during the entire summer school will be English. However, a number of lecturers, including the Summer School coordinator, are also fluent in Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, German and Turkish. Most course materials will be available in electronic forms. All the technological requirements such as laptop, projector, white board, markers, speakers and other logistics for the sessions will be made available by the organizer during the entire summer school period.


Further details on the assessment tasks will be provided by the lecturers on the first day of the summer school.
