COMPASS
SUMMER/WINTER SCHOOL 2019

NORTH - SOUTH - EAST - WEST

THE COMPASS DEBATE

COURSE SUMMARY

History, politics, international relations and civilisations must consider the different disciplines of geography, law, sociology, economics, technology and, today, climate change. Our natural environment has been drastically changed by excess consumption, and we either adapt, cooperate or fail.

Hence, the common factor that unifies the international Compass of East and West, North and South, is that common issues of technology including the use and misuse of social media, climate change, quality of life and human mobility are affecting us all at internet speed. Change appears to be the the only constant.

This school is aimed at looking at global issues from a North-South and East-West perspective which aims at bridging opinion and re-aligning divides. Attendees must expect to be full participants in this process with their knowledge, cultural and personal backgrounds and the will to discover new areas of meaning in their academic and professional present and future.

 

Master courses of the School

The School is made up of Master courses that combine theoretical lectures and discussions in the morning sessions of the cutting edge developments in a particular field with debates in the afternoon through the use of short student presentations and small group work. The objective of the school is to foster an understanding of how theories and practice are part of the real world of thinking and that there is no dichotomy of reality and fantasy in global issues.


Participants will be engaged on the individual basis and on a team approach with other international attendees.

Morning sessions will be devoted to plenary information and discussion themes. Afternoons are devoted to planning, research and formulation of ideas for proper debate. A moot court atmosphere will be adopted for specific afternoon sessions.
An extra day will be devoted to a visit to an international institution in Rome and to a visit to an Italian ministry.

A cultural programme bringing in the sights and sounds of Rome will be added to this programme.

Participants also have the possibility of visiting another Italian city with the group for a cultural excursion.
