International Summer School “The Past in the Present - History, Law and Memory”
In lovely Masurian Folwark Łękuk during our 3rd International Summer School participants will learn how to use a legal perspective in historical assessments. International legal perspective will be shown as a tool, supporting the work of historians, a tool useful to help assess historical events in a balanced manner, not based on mutually exclusive national interpretations. Summer School should help in establishing of personal contacts between young researchers from neighboring countries, with history full of mutual conflicts.
We have chosen 18 PhD students, young researchers and people engaged in public affairs from Poland, Germany, Russia, Ukraine, Hungary, Czech Republic, Armenia and Serbia. They have an opportunity to participate in various lectures and workshops led by eminent historians, international lawyers and political scientists, among others: prof. Klaus Bachmann (SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities), prof. Georgiy Kasyanov (National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine), prof. Władysław Czapliński (Polish Academy of Science), dr Patrycja Grzebyk (University of Warsaw).
