EU in Focus series - Spring 2019
date: February 11, 2019
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 Spring 2019 EU in Focus series, students will learn about what the EU is, how it works and its role as an international actor. Students can also participate in a working group linked to the series and develop a deeper understanding of how EU policy-making works through the study of two specific policy areas: Immigration and Brexit. The series will culminate in a visit to Brussels to visit the European institutions on the ground and to meet with actors and experts to further deepen their understanding of the issues.

Students who are interested in participating in the working group series must attend the introductory meetings with Professor Nicolò Conti on February 11, 2019 at 6pm and Davide Lombardo on March 4t, 2019 at 6 pm at Villa Sassetti, plus the dialogue on one of the two policy focus areas. Students can apply to be part of the working group by emailing briefly explaining why they would like to participate and how it would enhance their studies at NYU Florence.
