Linking “Europe at the periphery-LEAP
Since September 2019, Ilia State University got involved in new project “Linking ‘Europe’ at the periphery (LEAP) within the framework of Erasmus + Jean Monnet Networks.
The project aims to explore academically how the EU is taught in these countries and to create a conducive environment to exchanging knowledge and experience on the EU methodological and theoretical challenges of studying ‘Europe’ at the periphery. Apart from these, the project targets to shed light how the EU penetrates into the everyday lives of the people especially the young population and civil society activists. Besides, project aims to assess the reasons of Euroscepticism in the ‘periphery’ and the reasons hampering European Integration.
Another project partners are: Eskişehir Osmangazi University (Turkey), University of Pristina “Hasan Pristina”
(Republic of Kosovo), National University of Ivan Franko in Lviv (Ukraine), National University of Political Science and Public Administration (Romania).
The Project Coordinator: Middle East Technical University Centre for European Studies (Turkey).
