The University of Bucharest and Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu (Romania) are pleased to announce that they are organizing in the framework of the programme CIII-AT-0702-01-2013 Ethics and Politics in the European Context the summer school entitled What keeps us together? Diversity and solidarity in Europe.

In the last years, growing centrifugal tendencies seem to menace the core of the European project. There are economic, political and cultural reasons for this. Coming from different countries and backgrounds, we want to enter in a discussion on “what keeps us together”: can we speak about a common European identity? If it exists, which is the cultural, historical or religious ground for it? Is it strong enough to overcome the economic crisis, or should we think about an major revision of the European unifying process?

The summer school will take place in Bucharest and Sibiu in the period 2 - 12 September.

The participants will contribute to courses on the topic of the network given by professors from universities that are part of this CEEPUS programme, they present their current research and have the opportunity to exchange views. Beyond that, the organizers will invite experts from different sectors of the society to present their research and experience.

CEEPUS finances 20 places for students from the universities that are part of the network. Priority will be given to PhD students and to MA students working on the final version of their dissertation.

To apply to this summer school, it is necessary to provide:

- a letter of intent;

- a brief description of the PhD or MA current research;

- CV Europass;

- a short essay (max. 4000 words) on the issue of the summer school.
