Description

This summer American Education in Kosovo (A.U.K.) will again offer a  Peace-Building Post-Conflict Transformation and Development Program. The program, which will take place on the A.U.K. campus in Pristina, Kosovo from 29 June until 1 August, will be the fifth since the program’s inception. The A.U.K. Summer Program 2014 in Kosovo, building on the success of the previous four programs, will again offer a timely series of lectures and seminars, role plays and visits to historic sites in the region for participants from around the world.

The A.U.K Summer Program 2014 in Kosovo will provide an exceptional opportunity for students from around the world and from Kosovo, Serbia and other states in the region to study and debate, with academic experts and veterans of the recent conflict in Kosovo, the lessons learned from that conflict and the effort to build a new state in its aftermath. A.U.K.’s program seeks to bridge the gap between theory and practice. Conducted in a safe, vibrant environment, the Program combines post-conflict studies with access to decision makers and history-makers.

The five-week, residential, program consists of two courses, plus course-related trips to Albania, Greece, Macedonia or Bosnia, Montenegro, and Serbia. For participating students, each course carries three-semester credits. Transferable undergraduate credits are offered by A.U.K.’s U.S. partner, Rochester Institute of Technology in New York.
