Fulbright German Studies Seminar – Deadline: October 14, 2011
The topic for the 2012 Fulbright German Studies Seminar is “Nation-State” and European Identity” and will explore the balance of regional, national and European interests in areas such as the economy, labor market, social system and legislation.  Who shapes European values, who sets the goals in European foreign policy, and how do serious crises affect national and European markets and currencies? How do citizens feel about the various levels of identity, governance and bureaucracies they are subjected to, and how do these institutions align their positions from day to day?  For more information or to apply, please visit http://www.cies2.org/ or contact Tanya Janes at tjanes@iie.org.
