Summer Program in Democracy: Ancient Perspectives – Modern Challenges

From July 15 to 30, the Summer Program in Democracy: Ancient Perspectives – Modern Challenges was held in Athens.

Focusing on Democracy from different perspectives, ranging from history and philosophy to international relations, the course offered participants the opportunity to gain a critical overview of Democracy, analyze its diverse aspects and applications, and examine its changing nature and challenges from antiquity to the present, while exploring the vibrant capital of Greece. Participants also had the chance to enhance their summer experience by participating in field trips and visits to world-renowned sites and prestigious museums in and outside Athens, such as the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum, the Temple of Poseidon in Sounio, Ancient Mycenae, Delphi, and the National Archaeological Museum. 

Combining academic classes and meaningful discussions with cultural activities the program enabled international students to immerse themselves in the rich history and captivating civilization of Greece. 

Study in Greece would like to extend its heartfelt gratitude to the Department of Philosophy of NKUA and the course’s academic supervisor Prof. George Steiris, as well as to all participating instructors for making this program a success. 

We would also like to thank the administration and students of the University of Kurdistan Hewlêr for their collaborative efforts and commitment to academic excellence. It seems that this was just the start of a long and fruitful educational and cultural journey aimed at forging and deepening the two peoples’ ties through academic cooperation and exchange.
