Summer School Requirements and Target Group

The International University of Sarajevo welcomes applicants from a wide range of educational backgrounds. We invite applications from across the globe and from both undergraduate and graduate students as well as from young professionals interested in the topics related to transitional justice, international relations, conflict analysis and resolution, peace research, security studies, preventing diplomacy, anthropology, international law, history, sociology and ethnicity studies. Although most of you will be currently enrolled at a university or college, we also welcome applicants who have been away from formal education for some years. The participants are expected to have developed, or are in the process of developing, some basic background knowledge of and demonstrate their interest in the Balkans, BiH and post-conflict issues affecting societies after politically-motivated violence.

The  certificate of successful completion of the summer school will be issued upon accomplishing the assessment tasks 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.


NOTE: Selection of the applicants is going to be made on a monthly basis, the number of participants is limited to 20 places. The sooner you apply the greater your chances are of being accepted.
