Center for European Studies Student Forum (CESSF) cordially invites you to the 12th European Weekend School (EWS 2015) which will be held on 10 – 13 June 2015 at Boğaziçi University, Istanbul. EWS is an international certificate program that brings together undergraduate and graduate students from all over Europe; and enables them to exchange opinions with distinguished politicians, bureaucrats, academics, representatives of NGO’s, and leading journalists.

EWS 2015 will be held this year with 40 participants from both European countries and exchange students in Turkey, which will be executed on the principle of deliberative discussion, based on the idea of enabling interaction between participants and speakers during the panels and to involve every participant directly to the discussion of topics in the student workshops. The conference will be conducted through the topics of:

How Can We Define the Hate?
History of the Hate in Europe
Recent Times: Hate in Media
Hate in Constitutions: What are the Positions of European Countries and Especially Turkey?
Besides the panels and student workshops that will be held for 2 days, there will be social programmes including a cocktail prolongé and a boat trip for participants to enjoy the glorious view of Bosphorus at night.

In the application process, the applicants must submit a position paper about following topics:, 1) Definition of the Hate (by considering theoretical discussions and/or including analytical overview of current incidents of hate), OR 2) History of the Hate in Europe (History of the Hate in terms of Sexual Orientation, Race, and Religion) OR 3) Recent Times: Hate in Media (Examples of Hate Crimes and Speeches in Media), OR 4) Hate in Constitutions: The Positions of European Countries (Proposals About Hate in Constitutions). The position papers will reflect the level of interest and knowledge of the applicant on the topics that will be discussed in the conference. The position papers of the applicants will be written single spaced, typed in 12 pt with TNR, not exceeding one page and only about one of the topics stated above.

Deadline for application is 24 April 2015, Friday. Selected participants will be notified by 04 May 2015, Monday.

Participants will have to pay a participation fee of 150 Euros after they arrive. The participants who won’t be accommodating in our premises will have to pay a participation fee of 100 Euros upon their arrival.

The panels, workshops, food, social programme and accommodation expenses of the participants will be covered by the organization.

Travel costs need to be covered by the participants.
