EU in Focus Series

location: Villa Sassetti

The European Union has the world´s largest GDP; the world´s third largest population; and is among the highest ranking in the world for health, education and living conditions. Through NYU Florence´s The EU in Focus series, students will learn about what the EU is, its history, how it works and its role in the global economy. Students who participate in a working group linked to the series will develop a deeper understanding of how EU policy-making works through the study of two specific policy areas and will further their knowledge through a trip to Brussels where they will visit the European institutions and meet with experts to find out how the policy-making process works from the inside.

You can apply through February 16 by sending an email to explaining why you would like to be part of the EU on the Ground Working Group and how it would enhance your studies at NYU Florence. Students admitted to the working group must attend three mandatory lectures and three working group sessions in order to be eligible for the trip to Luxembourg and Brussels. Students who participated in Fall 2014 are eligible.
