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 Faculty of Social and Political Sciences 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 focuses 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 1-12 February 2021 and will focus on the topic of “Federalism and Local Self-Government“. It is organized in close cooperation with the European Union’s H2020 Research and Innovation Staff Exchange project “LoGov – Local Government and the Changing Urban-Rural Interplay”.
The 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.
