Summer School on Development, Sustainability and Globalization

The Prague Summer School on Development, Sustainability and Globalization aims to enrich the discussion on most relevant aspects of continued globalization and the challenges arising for global development. The program is conceptualized within a broad framework, as the study of development challenges cannot discern, for instance, the debate on food production and consumption in both developed and developing countries from the debate on environmental impacts of development or existing institutional arrangements based on political negotiations and multilateral cooperation. Continued globalization, climate change, migratory movements and forced displacement, in turn, need to be taken into account in any serious discussion on how to provide sustainable development, protect human livelihoods, societal cohesion, and guaranteeing functioning institutions. Our program will provide students with deeper understanding of different facets of development and related challenges by addressing the political, socio-economic, technological and environmental aspects related to development cooperation.

  • To get a multidisciplinary perspective on development in a globally interdependent world.
  • To equip you with knowledge that will enable you to become a future pioneer of socially and environmentally sustainable development.
