The theme of the summer school was ‘Europe in the World’. This included, for instance, the role of the European Union (EU) as international actor, the implications of EU development and foreign policies, but also how the global environment affects EU policies and politics. The summer school accordingly had both an ‘outward’ look on the implication of EU agents and policies in global arenas and an ‘inward’ focus on the impact of globalization on EU institutions and policies. The summer school dealt with the theme ‘Europe in the World’ both in theoretical and empirical terms, but also in terms of research methods. By means of concrete examples various research techniques was discussed including methods know from comparative politics, discourse analysis, foreign policy analysis and international relations.
