The Winter School on Federalism and Governance is a common cross-border project of the Institute for Comparative Federalism of Eurac Research, the Faculty of Law and the School of Political Science and Sociology of the University of Innsbruck. Since its first edition in 2010, it has taken place under the auspices of the Secretary General of the Council of Europe.
The Winter School analyzes the phenomena of federalism, regionalism and multilevel governance from legal and political science perspectives. Each edition focusses on a specific topic, which is then approached in detail by legal scholars, political scientists and practitioners. The next edition of the Winter School will take place from 5-16 February 2018 and will focus on federalism in the making.
The two-week postgraduate programme welcomes an international audience: young researchers and academics, post-docs and post-graduate students, civil servants from a local, regional or national government as well as employees of international organizations or NGOs.
