17th OLYMPIA SUMMER ACADEMY 2018

The Olympia Summer Academy, an intensive summer school in comparative and international politics for graduate students, young professionals and senior undergraduates, proudly presents its 2018 program. The 17th Olympia Summer Academy will take place from July 8 until July 18, 2018, in Nafplion in southeastern Greece.

The 2018 Academy consists of six cycles. As was the case in the past, a cycle is devoted to the study of political violence, terrorism and political risk. There are three cycles covering new subjects this year.

There is a new cycle on economic governance and the relationship of capitalism with democracy, a very timely subject as the rise of China has revived interest in authoritarian developmentalism.

There is a second new cycle on the multiple crises festering the Middle East under the rubric of the remaking of the international order that was established a hundred years ago with the end of World War I and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.

Finally, a third new cycle, related to some extent to the previous one, is devoted to the refugee crisis that has dominated the headlines in recent years. This cycle aims to offer students a comprehensive understanding of the issues involved. While theory and practice have often been at odds when it comes to managing forced displacement, the cycle tries to reconcile both perspectives with a multi-disciplinary approach.

Please find here the call for applications for the 2018 Olympia Summer Academy. Please note that there are many opportunities for financial aid.

Apply now and join a select group of more than 1,000 proud “Olympians” from 70 different nations who excel in academia, business and politics worldwide today. Thanks to a combination of the in-class teaching and out-of-class activities and the high quality of both the faculty and the students, this can be a transformative experience that will help you achieve your career goals.
