EPS students are regularly invited to discussion and debate with interesting personalities from EPS associated partners. Besides, various social events are also organised in order to integrate EPS students into local student community and to discover local culture and customs.
EPS students write the blog where they share their experience with the programme and various events related to their studies. In addition, two students published book reviews in the Czech Journal of Political Science. Juliana Crema wrote a review over the book Gender Equality in Law: Uncovering the Legacies of Czech State Socialism by Barbara Havelková and Kate Langdon reviewed Bálint Magyar’s book Post-Communist Mafia State: The Case of Hungary.
Besides these activities, students doing an internship in our associated partner New Eastern Europe magazine, Kate Langdon and Jordan Luber, made a retrospective interview about the Ukrainian Revolution and about the role of intellectuals in public life both with Marci Shore, Associate Professor of History at Yale University in New Haven (Connecticut).
