About the 2016 summer school

The summer school was organized by the Department of International Relations and European Studies of the Faculty of Social Studies of Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic and Center for Energy Studies, together with our partners U.S. Embassy in The Czech Republic; 50Hertz Transmission GmbH; CEZ, a.s.; E.ON Ceska Republika, s.r.o.; and International Institute of Political Science of Masaryk University; and our media partners Euroskop.cz and EurActiv.cz are proud to present "The Energy Policy of the EU and its Position in Global Energy Environment," a summer school on the topic of energy security.

The summer school aimed at thorough examination of both recent and long-term developments, plans and policies of the EU influenced by the development of the global energy environment. The carefully selected lecturers helped the students to unveil the logic and motivation behind, understand the reasons, tools and effects, and to perceive the effect on the industrial and social sectors.

The primary target of this event was to offer to students of Central, Eastern and Western Europe as well as the student from outside Europe the opportunity to study the most important contemporary issues related to energy security and energy policy.

Misunderstanding of differences and specifics in different EU-regions creates unnecessary friction and may result in disputes. Besides the primary goal of providing orientation on energy security framework and challenges to the students, this summer school also aimed to encourage dialogue in which the participants could discuss common positions and thus facilitate overcoming certain ideological gaps between different attitudes and approaches to the selected issues of the summer school.
