The project “Századvég Summer School – Prospects for the V4 and the CEE region concerning the current challenges of the EU: migration, society, economy” covers a seven-day long summer school program based in Budapest, involving the historical town of Visegrád and Somlóvásárhely which is famous for its wine region. The program is organized by the Századvég Foundation and sponsored by the Visegrad Fund.
The aim of the project is to bring together potential future leaders from Central and Eastern Europe and initiate intellectual cooperation among them on topics like the future of the Visegrad Group and of the broader CEE region, migration and the economic role of CEE.
We expect 20 participants altogether from V4 countries. Ideal candidates are students of Social Sciences, who have completed at least 3 academic semesters already, with an excellent academic record and proven interest in public policy and international affairs. Fluency in English is necessary for application.
The Századvég Foundation was established in 1993 as the first conservative political think tank in Hungary. It has been conducting public opinion research, political and social analysis for 25 years now. Századvég's research-based policy studies cover the widest range of policy areas such as economic policy, foreign and security policy, demography, youth and family policy issues. The Foundation also conducts important sociology research projects, filling decade long gaps of research, to reveal the deep structures within the subsystems of European and Hungarian society.
