Sarajevo Study Trip
2013 Trip: 27 January - 30 January
The Center for Constitutional Studies and Democratic Development invites Johns Hopkins University Bologna Center students and University of Bologna Faculty of Law students to participate in a four-day study trip to Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina during the February semester recess.
The aim of the study trip is to give students the opportunity to meet with representatives of organisations currently engaged in post-conflict reconstruction, human rights issues and democratic development. It will show students some of the challenges involved in a real world post-conflict situation.
Spaces have been limited to 30 participants. Tentatively, 15 spots are available for Bologna Center students and 15 spots are available for University of Bologna students.
