Specialisation adopts a wider regional perspective and focuses on the relations of Europe (including Central and Eastern Europe), with the area of the former Soviet Union. The specialization aims in particular at obtaining and deepening the students’ knowledge on the situation of countries in the region, studied from a political, historical, economic, social and cultural perspective. This unique, tailor-made programme educates experts who will be able to have both the knowledge of the European Union, its institutions, actions and policies, and an in-depth understanding of the region of Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, and Eurasia.
Students who graduate with this specialisation are qualified to work in regional, local and national governmental positions, non-governmental organisations, think-tanks, consultancy and public affairs, diplomacy and foreign affairs institutions. The studies also prepare them for further academic studies, conducting research and managing academic projects.
