WEASA 2023: Security and resilience in a changing world

This year’s edition of WEASA will take place July 2-12, 2023 at the College of Europe in Natolin! WEASA is an annual summer school for mid-career professionals from the Eastern Partnership, the Western Balkans, and Poland organized in partnership by: The College of Europe in Natolin, the Polish-American Freedom Foundation and the German Marshall Fund of the United States. Here are the WEASA2023 Program and WEASA2023 Speakers


Security, geopolitics and digital affairs

WEASA editions have examined a variety of topics – from energy security to regional development. Between 2017 and 2021, WEASA has looked specifically at how digital technology has transformed our thinking on social, political, economic and security issues. Consequently, we have decided to strengthen our focus specifically on digital affairs which continues to be a key component of WEASA editions. The February 24th 2022 full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine once again highlighted key issues of geopolitics and security for the region. WEASA will continue to examine such key topics as geopolitics, European integration, security cooperation and linking the importance of these topics to both regions
