“Europe Meets Russia” has been designed with the intention of bringing together young individuals (mid-to-later stage students and young professionals with 1-2 years experience). The program has been developed in recognition of the importance of the relationship between Russia, Europe, and the global political system. Participants will gain insight into cultural diplomacy, exchange ideas and experiences, and learn from influential figures in the given field. Participants will be able to network and develop contacts on social and professional levels through the participation of lectures, challenging workshops, and discussions. The weeklong seminar will include lectures, seminars, and workshops led by experts from the fields of politics, academia, and civil society, as well as cultural and social activities. In addition to raising awareness amongst the participants on the field of cultural diplomacy and salient issues concerning European-Russian relations, the week provides an opportunity to network and experience Berlin.
