The Memorandum of Understanding includes cooperation related to John Cabot University’s new M.A. in International Affairs and GGI’s Summer School in Global Peace, Security, and Strategic Studies, offering students the possibility of an intensive Brussels module combined with a policy-making traineeship.
The MoU also creates possibilities for a wide range of cooperation on innovative teaching formats in the realm of executive training and life-long learning initiatives as well as collaborative research and policy-relevant activities in the realm of international and global affairs.
The MoU also seeks to strengthen mutual reinforcement of the policy networks of Brussels and Rome, particularly in the field of UN agencies and international organizations dealing with regional and global issues.
