In recent months, we have been luck to welcome several new sections to ISHA International, as well as welcome back an inactive section! We are very happy with the growth we have seen during this last year and if you are interested in starting your own section, take a look here and see how you can get involved!
We are happy that a new section has been established in Bosnia and Herzegovina and look forward to meeting the members of ISHA Sarajevo at one of the international events! In the meantime, have a look at their Facebook-page!
With the creation of ISHA Moscow, just a few months ago, and now ISHA Kaliningrad, we are glad to see ISHA spread to a new country and we really hope that the members of ISHA Kaliningrad enjoyed their first ISHA event in Lausanne! Make sure that you follow them on social media as well!
Finally, sometimes sections who have been inactive, can come back to life and so we happily announce the re-emergence of ISHA Belgrade (Klub Studenata Istorije Beograd). ISHA Belgrade was once known as the Students of History Club Belgrade (ISHA Belgrade) and was officially founded on May 23rd, 2007, in the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Belgrade. The last event they organized was the ISHA New Year Seminar in 2011, but soon the section died out. Now, we can welcome them back again, so check out their their website and like them on Facebook!
Days 1 & 2:
For three days participants were discussing issues about the (de)construction of Europe. After the tasty dinner and ice-breaking pub visits yesterday, we had wonderful discussions today.
We visited the archive of the Jean Monet Foundation and discussed about perceptions of Europe in different countries. We continued with an exciting workshop about Switzerland and its relationship about the European Union.
The last day of the Lausanne Seminar is over and most of the participants are on their way home already.
Thursday’s workshop sessions were very interesting and highly productive. In order to activate our braincells even more, several sport activities were provided in the afternoon. Later our efforts were rewarded with another delicious dinner (homemade Paella).
The next morning the academic program was closed by Bernhard Altermatt who gave us a lecture about Euroscepticism at the Foundation Jean-Monnet pour l’Europe.
Later that day we had a guided city tour through the astounding old town.
We’re thanking ISHA Lausanne for the amazing organization and this wonderful Seminar!
