The Institute of Federalism is pleased to announce its annual International Summer University which is in its 24th year. The Summer University is a three-week course, from 20 August to 07 September 2012 that provides participants with a unique opportunity to learn and experience the current state of scholarship and practice in the area of federalism, decentralisation and conflict resolution. The Summer University is aimed at advanced students of law, political sciences, economics or journalism (with at least four years of University level studies) and young professionals keen to improve their knowledge of federalism, decentralisation and conflict resolution.

A range of international lecturers will provide their expertise. Teaching will be a mix of lectures, case studies, self‐reading, and group work; it will be enhanced by visits to local and cantonal institutions.
