A German-Polish exchange of experience
in the context of the Arab revolutions

Berlin, 21 to 26 October 2012

Seminar for skill development of junior academics and young disseminators from Germany and Poland from 21 to 26 October 2012. Held in cooperation with the Polish Robert Schuman Foundation in Warsaw.

German and Polish experiences as well as theoretical aspects of system change, transformation and democratisation will be taken as a starting point, in order to compare the two cases, reflect on what lessons can be drawn from Europe's past and to what extent these can be applied to the recent political and social upheavals in the Arab World. Moreover, the seminar will examine German and Polish possibilities and capacities to contribute to EU efforts towards a positive outcome of the current revolutions and transformation processes.

Participants will attend input presentations from relevant experts from Germany and Poland and will be given the opportunity to discuss and critically reflect upon issues with them. The seminar will make use of innovative methods for skill development such as the 'Pecha Kucha' presentation, the World Café format and a simulation in order to enhance competences, providing opportunities for networking and exchanging experience. There will be the possibility to present own academic research. The seminar will be held in English.

The participation fee is 129,00 Euro per person for German participants and 79,00 Euro for participants from Poland. The participation fee covers 5 nights in a double room, including board and working material during the seminar.
