UN Youth Summer School on Diplomacy is a key-note academic programme specifically designed for bringing together Romanian students with their international peers from every imaginable walk of life. Through both learning and networking, distinguished speakers will provide the students with their knowledge, diverse perspectives and experiences, making it a unique space for debating the proposed topics.
This year’s Summer School on Diplomacy will take place between the 22nd and 28th of July in Bucharest, Romania, with the general theme ‘Human Rights in the Era of Globalization’. The goal of the project is to offer the participants a clear picture of the multiple branches that this topic has. Starting from the history of Human Rights, their categories, violations throughout time and closing with what Human Rights mean in a modern society, students will be encouraged to bring their input while being presented at all times with an academic perspective on the matter.
The programme will comprise lectures, debates and wokshops that will depict the complexity of Human Rights’ meaning. The curriculum will address the theoretical side of the fundamental rights, how they divide, but also some general facts on how they developed along the decades. It will also address topics such as Public International Law, Humanitarian and Refugee Law, migration and minorities. One important side of the project can be found in its interactive and engaging seminars and workshops, such as the ones on negotiation and mediation.
The project has always enjoyed the presence of intellectuals and professionals, this year making no exeption, as respected diplomats, academics, Ambassadors and businessmen are invited to provide an unforgettable academic experience. Aside from the educational programme, participants will take part in a variety of social activities, which guarantee a complete Summer School experience by intertwining our high academic standards with fun memories and socialization.
