Illicit Trade
This unique summer school teaches students about illicit financing and trading; not only through theory and book study, but by learning the actual practices and techniques criminals, terrorists, and dictators use to obscure their profits and evade accountability for their actions, and the corresponding techniques to counter them.


Mining industry, CSR and Local Development
This summer school is held in Tanzania, where the participants will explore local perspectives, corporate responsibility and economics regarding gypsum production and processing. The course includes field visits to the Same District Council and the mining site in Makanya Ward. Participants will also be given the change to meet officials of the Same District Council and local
communities in Makanya Ward.


Intercultural Competence

With an emphasis on using developmental approaches to decrease learner resistance, the offered programme will cover everything from distinct thinking
and communication styles to intercultural
training methods and resources.
