Launched by the Central European University (CEU) , the non-degree programme “Invisible University for Ukraine” (IUFU) brings together junior and senior undergraduate (B.A) and graduate (M.A and Ph.D) students from Ukraine, whose studies were affected by the war. Members of UiA’s Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence offer teaching support to the initiative’s module “Ukraine and/in Europe”, which is co-led by Maryna Rabinovych. In particular, Stefan Gänzle and Maryna Rabinovych will teach on Ukraine’s differentiated European integration amid the war; Anne Pintsch will co-lead the session on Central and Eastern European countries’ enlargement experience and its applicability to the Ukrainian case, and Romulo Pinheiro will speak about the European higher education space and the prospects for Ukraine to join it.
We have launched 6 EU –kort fortalt (briefly explained) online video-materials providing pupils in mainly high schools (Ungdomsskole and Videregående) with background information about the EU. The videos are in Norwegian only, and last from 3- 6 minutes each.
You can find the videos under the publications.
The Routledge Handbook of Differentiation in the European Union has been published! It is co-edited by Jean Monnet Group Members Stefan Gänzle and Jarle Trondal and contains chapters by various researchers of the Jean Monnet Centre.
