Exchange Program for Regional Integration in East Asia and Europe (EPRIE)

After the successful initiation of the Exchange Program for Regional Integration in East Asia and Europe (EPRIE) in Europe in 2012 and in East Asia in 2013, we will continue the program in 2014 in Europe again. The next EPRIE, titled “Concept of Nations”, will be held from June 20 to July 2, 2014, in Warsaw (Poland), Berlin/Halle (Germany), and Strasbourg (France).

The aim of EPRIE is to activate a transnational dialogue through a comparison of the situations of historically burdened neighbors in Europe (Germany, France, and Poland) and East Asia (China, Japan and South Korea). Special topic in 2014 will be “concepts of nations”, where nation creation and transnational concepts will be considered and harmonization initiatives will be discussed. Which factors play a relevant role for the creation of a national or a regional identity? Which factors can foster mutual understanding? Experts from science, politics, and civil society will introduce their perspectives and discuss it with the participants. In addition to gaining specialized knowledge participants will develop intercultural competences. Through intensive dialogue in international groups, the seminar will encourage participants to build an enduring network. 

We would like to encourage especially Japanese candidates to apply for this program. Candidates should have special interest in the topic, be a master or a PhD student or a young professional. Because English will be the language of the program, candidates must speak English fluently.

The organizers will cover all basic expenses during the program (like costs for hotels, transfers, meals). However, participants are expected to cover the costs for their journey from their home destination to the conference location in Warsaw and back from Strasbourg themselves.

The organizer of the program is the Korea Verband, a politically independent and non-governmental organization in Berlin. Cooperation partners are the Robert Bosch Stiftung, a private German foundation engaged in international understanding, and the European Academy Berlin. Additional support will be given by the Japan office of Friedrich-Ebert Foundation in Tokyo, the Aleksander-Brueckner-Centre for Polish Studies in Halle, and the Faculty of Modern History at the University of Warsaw.

The application period will end on April 30, 2014.

If you are interested in the program, please send the application form, recommendation form and a short CV (resume) in English to Rita Zobel .
