Summer school will teach 30 participants on theoretical and practical aspects of institutional reforms in emerging democracies and post- conflict countries of South East Europe in the light of European integrations. The 10-day summer school program will be made out of lectures and workshops of numerous prominent experts (theoretical and practical oriented). Students will have classes in the morning and in the afternoon, combined with study time. Visits to domestic and international institutions will be a part of the program to ensure dynamics and opportunity to understand hands- on approach from practitioners. Summer school will also include extracurricular activities that will allow networking among participants.
The first, pilot, edition of the summer school project for social sciences students was implemented in 2006 and gathered 35 students (from SEE and EU) for 7 days in Sarajevo to teach them Balkan studies and to give them the opportunity to discuss relevant issues related to SEE and the European Union. Until today, 180 ISSS participants went through the summer school and gained knowledge on theoretical and practical aspects of rule of law, transitional justice and human rights. Concept of the summer school slightly varied through the years, but focus on combination of theoretical and practical to different topics has remained along with eligibility for participants from Europe (with particular emphasis on South- East Europe) and US. In 2010, ISSS was enriched with a publishing component through International Journal on Rule of Law, Human Rights and Transitional Justice; since then, 3 editions have already been published.
