Welcome to the Summer Program 2019 in Kosovo

Dates: June 23 – July 27 2019

RIT-Kosovo’s unique Summer Program in Peace and Conflict Studies will run from June 23-July 26 2019.  It provides an experience students will never forget.

  • The program opens with a one-week study tour to Albania, Montenegro, Croatia, Bosnia, and Serbia, where students meet officials and activists, and visit historic and recreational areas in the beautiful Balkans.
  • Upon return to Prishtina, students work in Kosovo’s ‘living laboratory’ of history in the heart of the Balkans to explore the origin and resolution of armed conflict, reconstruction and institution building at the end of wars.
  • Courses are taught by senior civilian and military officials, NGO activists and academics with hands-on experience in the Balkans, Middle East and elsewhere.
  • Students meet Kosovo Government senior officials and activists, as well as senior officials from diplomatic and international missions. They visit historically significant sites in Kosovo, take part in informal late-afternoon seminars on current issues, and participate in workshop/simulations of peace keeping operations.
