Conflict Resolution (Cyprus) Seminar - October 2021

The Conflict Resolution seminar took place in October 2021 via zoom. We were in the fortunate position to have two outstanding guest speakers for this session who were invited to the EUROSUD class of Southern Europe in International Affairs taught by Prof Georgios Karyotis. Professor Ahmet Sözen (Eastern Mediterranean University ) and Professor Costas Constantinou (University of Cyprus). Both shared their professional and personal experiences of navigating this conflict with the students.

Professor Sözen commented: "EUROSUD students, by far, have been one of the most active and engaged students compared to the other groups to whom I give seminars several times a year.
Indeed, as Costa put it, it is always a pleasure and easier to do this seminar with students who have prior knowledge and have special interest in the region."

 


EUROSUD 2021-23 Student Induction

The University of Glasgow warmly welcomed the new student intake of EUROSUD International students, who came from 21 countries around the globe, to the City of Glasgow.

The first stage of a 2-year International Master in South European Studies, students will spend the first semester in Glasgow, before venturing to their next location, depending on their choice of pathway, selecting between Athens or Madrid for Semester 2, adding Rome and Marseille, with a Winter School in Lisbon in year 2.

Day 1 of Induction, the students were introduced to teaching and Administrative staff who gave them an overview of the courses and the administrative side of the programme, providing an opportunity for questions.

A social event was organised in the evening at the CCA - Centre for Contemporary Arts, Saramago Cafe Bar, in Sauchiehall Street, in Glasgow City, with a buffet and drinks. There was a great atmosphere as everyone got to know each other, some meeting for the first time. It was a great night!

Classes have now started, and so the EUROSUD journey begins!

DISSERTATION SEASON!

Dr Simone Tulumello

EUROSUD 2nd year dissertation students attended a series of Dissertation Colloquia (April, May & June online), coordinated by Dr Simone Tulumello from our partner at ICS Lisbon with our Director Dr Myrto Tsakatika in attendance.

The Dissertation Colloquia offered an informal space for discussion on issues, doubts, problems and successes in the making of the dissertation.

The students were pleased that they had suggested the Dissertation Colloquia at the last Staff Student Liaison Committee (SSLC) meeting and that the Consortium had taken this on board!

COVID-19 updates and implications for teaching across the EUROSUD partners

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about important challenges for Universities, staff and students. One key challenge has been adapting teaching practice and delivery to the changing and uncertain circumstances that we are all facing. An additional challenge for EUROSUD is that our teaching takes place across six countries which are subject to different levels of infection, restrictions and safety measures. The Universities that participate in the EUROSUD Consortium also vary in terms of their facilities and therefore their ability to deliver teaching face-to-face while respecting national restrictions.

In this page, we will publish up to date information on how teaching is delivered at any one time across our six partner Universities. We will also aim to provide information on local COVID-related conditions.

How will COVID-19 affect the programme in 2022?
‘We are hopeful that COVID-19 will not affect delivery of the EUROSUD programme beginning in September 2022 and that students joining the programme in 2022 will not be affected by COVID-related travel restrictions. We will, however, continue to monitor the situation carefully throughout the year and publish any relevant updates on our website.’

***INFORMATION IS UPDATED REGULARLY!***

Currently, the plan for the upcoming teaching Semester September 2021 is as follows:

University of Glasgow: teaching will be on a blended learning basis depending on class sizes (more updates here)

National and Kapodistrian University of Athens: teaching will take place online (tbc)

Universidad Autonoma de Madrid: teaching will take place face to face (more updates here) (tbc)

Aix-Marseille Universite: teaching will take place face to face (tbc)

LUISS Guido Carli: teaching will take place face to face (tbc)

ICS-ULisboa: teaching will take place online (tbc)

This information will be updated as and when circumstances change.


Prof Sözen returns to University of Glasgow

Prof Georgios Karyotis welcomed Prof Ahmet Sözen, Eastern Mediterranean University for a return visit to his online seminar, remarking that both he and his students really enjoyed his unique insights and wealth of knowledge about the conflict in Cyprus and the broader lessons that emerge from it in relation to the challenges and opportunities for conflict resolution. Prof Sözen commented that the EUROSUD students were very attentive!
