THESEUS Summer School 2012

The Future of EU Economic Governance

Brussels 02/07 - 06/07/2012


To promote interdisciplinary and international networks among a new generation of Europeans, each year the THESEUS Seminars look for 20 excellent young professionals and researchers to discuss European challenges with high-level experts and decision makers.


As in previous years the seminar featured speakers and high-level experts from international organisations, business, politics, as well as recognised researchers. Iain Begg from the London School of Economics accompanied the seminar as THESEUS Resident Researcher. Beyond own teaching he were animating the debate and advising students on group and individual basis. The participants had the possibility to bring in their own academic/professional contributions and to discuss them with the group and the experts. Three days of intensive preparation were followed by a European Council simulation exercise discussing future scenarios of a European economic government.
