2023 Summer School in the Finnish Borderlands

7-18 August 2023, in Finland

In these uncertain times, the University of Eastern Finland’s Joensuu campus is offering an exciting summer school opportunity looking at European borderland security in light of the War in Ukraine. A multi-disciplinary programme that addresses the new global geopolitical reality through the lenses of, e.g. history, cross-border personal, political and economic relations, media and public policy, this course for senior undergraduates/post-graduates (5 ECTS) is uniquely located in Finland’s borderlands (about 70km to the nearest border crossing with Russia) and includes an excursion to the border town of Imatra, the site of Finland’s forthcoming border fence.

In English.
