The binational Franco-German Fall Academy “The Rise of Populism in Europe” aims to bring together members of the German student think tank Studentenforum im Tönissteiner Kreis e.V. and the French student network Conférence Olivaint for a collaborative policy project. Being members of the Politeia Network, both organisations have already worked together successfully in the past, and have set a new agenda for this year: deciphering populism through Franco-German perspectives with a particular focus on younger generations.
In deep-dive sessions, the participants will meet with French and German decisionmakers, social scientists, journalists and voters.
The Fall Academy will be held in Berlin and Paris and bring together 20 students and young professionals from both France and Germany. The participants will submit a policy paper with clear policy recommendations to European decision-makers in both countries.
Agenda of the Fall Academy: a total of 13 days, comprising 6 days in Paris and 7 days in Berlin.
The conference in Paris will take place from 25th to 30th of September 2017, while its counterpart in Berlin will be held from 31st of October to 6th of November 2017.
Participation fee: 50 €
