The GREEN-GEM PhD Summer School marks the continuation of the efforts deployed from 2005-10 within the GARNET network of excellence (FP6) which sought to create a new kind of international and interdisciplinary training platform for PhD students.

 Over the course of the first 10 seminars organized under the aegis of the GARNET network of excellence, the PhD School perfected its format allowing it to meet – and in several cases exceed – its initial goals regarding its thematic scope; the diversity of its disciplinary reach; and the suitability of the training opportunities provided.

 Over the course of its first life cycle the PhD School hosted the following Summer/Winter Schools:

  1. The EU and global governance: efficiency and legitimacy @ ULB-IEE, Brussels (December 2005)
  2. The EU and Globalization: the interplay between Globalization and the European Socio-economic model. Is Lisbon the right answer? @ ULB-IEE, Brussels (June 2006)
  3. The EU, Political Multilateralism, and its interactions with the UN @ UNU-Cris, Bruges (December 2006)
