In 2017, NIAS in collaboration with the Fudan-European Centre for China Studies and Nansen Academy held the first NEWDAY–Nansen East-West Dialogue Academy at Nansen Academy in Lillehammer, Norway. The summer school featured lectures by prominent scholars, journalists, and thinkers as well as debates and dialogue between students and teachers on the burning issues of our time. This year we once again invite interested students to participate in an inter-disciplinary training program addressing current global challenges in a unique social setting. The main themes of the 2018 include gender and society; media and activism; climate crisis and environmental degradation – and many more! We welcome applications from students of BA and MA level from within all disciplines. Please note that applications close on 22 June 2018.
Deadline for application: 22 June
Dates : 7-17 August
Venue: Nansen Academy – Bjørnstjerne Bjørnsonsgate 2, 2609 Lillehammer, Norway
