Study Baltic Sea cooperation!

2nd CBSS Summer University

Baltic Sea cooperation has developed over the past 25 years, starting off during the final years of the Cold War East-West divide, widening by Baltic independence and deepening by the European Union Northern and Eastern enlargements. As such, the Baltic Sea has become something of an inner-lake of the European Union. The EU macro-regional strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR), the first of its kind, has given additional impetus to various fields of cooperation. But the Baltic Sea Region is also a place of intense and mutually beneficial cross-border cooperation with non-EU member states, particularly Russia, in a regional context. Hence, Baltic Sea cooperation contributes to the development of trustful EU-Russia partnership relations.

The CBSS Summer University has a unique profile. It not only introduces the basics of governance and administration in the Baltic Sea Region by drawing on different disciplines, but also offers insight into the practice of cooperation. Students preparing for a future as professionals of Baltic Sea cooperation or pursuing academic research on topics related to the region are invited to the CBSS Summer University to discuss issues of high relevance and to make valuable personal contacts. The learning outcomes thus include competence building as well as networking and intercultural experience with a view to making one’s own contribution to societal, environmental and economic partnerships in the region.
