The Winter School on Federalism and Governance is a 2-week international postgraduate programme on federalism, regionalism and multilevel governance. The 2018 edition will take place in Austria and Italy from February 5-16, 2018 and will focus on "Federalism in the Making".

The Winter School is designed for participants from all nationalities who wish to broaden their knowledge of federalism and multilevel governance through an interdisciplinary and comparative approach. We welcome applications from post-docs, postgraduate & graduate students, researchers, civil servants, employees of national/international organizations or NGOs. The Winter School explores how federalism can contribute to multilevel, integrated and pluralistic decision-making. It is a unique opportunity to receive training on theoretical and practical aspects of federalism and governance.

For one week at the University of Innsbruck and one week at Eurac Research, Bolzano/Bozen, participants will analyze the basic requirements, origins and evolution of federal states, constitution making, as well as the success and risk factors of multilevel systems.

To apply, fill out the online application including personal data, education and work background, statement of motivation and essay by 26 October 2017. Please see the attached flyer for major details on the Winter School 2018. For further information, please visit the Winter School website or Facebook page.
