RCC is pleased to announce that RCC Director, José Manuel Martínez Sierra, Jean Monnet ad Personam Professor in EU Law and Government, will be one of the faculty members invited to be part of the 2016 European Student Conference.

On February 5th and 6th 2016, one hundred undergraduate and graduate students from universities across the USA will gather at the Yale School of Management to address some of the major challenges confronting the European Union. As participants of the European Student Conference (ESC 2016) they will:

  • Craft policy papers that deal with European challenges in the areas of economics, immigration, institutions, European identity, and security.
  • Engage in debates with distinguished professors, current and former decision-makers from Europe, and representatives of the European Commission.
  • Draft a concrete plan of action for implementing the policy visions and strategies that they develop.
  • Learn about European Horizons, a think-tank with chapters at 18 American universities and College d’Europe, dedicated to exploring the meaning of European identity, modernizing and reforming the concept of the social market economy, pursuing European integration, and deepening transatlantic relations.

The ESC 2016 is a European Horizons conference that is co-funded by the European Union as a Jean Monnet Activity under the Erasmus+ Programme.
