Course Unit Page

Academic Year 2017/2018

Learning outcomes

The seminars aim to analyze some of the most relevant issues on Eastern European politics and cultures vividly related to current debates and events. The deepening of their contents requires the contribution of experts and practitioners that therefore will be helpful in completing the academic/theoretical education of the students during the seminars. The seminars will focus on the evolving political systems and regional security situations, and/or on the most recent cultural changes in transitional societies, including the role of media in mirroring the reality. At the end of the seminars, the students are expected to have acquired theoretical and practical knowledge of the issues above mentioned as well as the ability of applying and reporting this knowledge to the different contexts/case studies analyzed.
