Kosovo Summer Program

Published March 25, 2014

On behalf of Bridge Education Abroad Institute (BEAI), I am writing to you today to inform you about our summer program in Kosovo. Our institute plans short programs all across the world, to provide students with unique opportunities to experience different political cultures while strengthening their leadership and diplomacy skills. Our programs draw a diverse group of students together from all over the world to discuss pressing global issues while exchange cultural values. In a rapidly globalizing world, we believe these experiences are invaluable to the success of students in the global job market.

For the summer of 2014, we have one program scheduled in Pristine, Kosovo during the dates July 9th-19th, 2014. This program will include lectures from experienced professors and guest speakers from all over the globe, including the United States of America. A few of our professors include:

  • Professor Dr. Tim Allen (London School of Economics) – Author and Head of Department of International Development.
    • Executive Director of the Justice and Security Research Programme (JSRP)
    • Consultant with numerous international organizations, including UNDP, UNICEF, UNRISD, MSF, LWF, Save the Children, World Vision and DFID
  • Professor Dr. Paul Joseph (Tufts University, USA)– Author and Previous Director of the Peace and Justice Studies Program
    • PHD from UC Berkeley
    • Previous president of the national Peace Studies Association
    • Former Distinguished Chair for the United States-India Education Foundation (Fulbright program)
  • Professor Dr. Remijze Istefi- Current Professor at University of Prishtina
    • L.L.M. from Notre Dame, PhD in Political Science with a specialization in International Human Rights Law and International Organization.

•   Various High Ranking officials (Last year we hosted Prime Minister Hashim Thaçi)
•   USA Embassy
•   United Nations
•   Advisors to the President

The students will enrich their knowledge of Kosovo’s history, international politics, and economics while also enjoying travel to famous and historic places. We also encourage students to get to know one another and share cultural values through planned social events.

• A tour of parliament
• Field trips to Peja City, Mirusha Falls, Prizren city and more.

Even with the summer close at hand, there are still plenty of students still figuring out their plans for the upcoming break. We hope you will consider recognition of our institute as an option for your students who are looking for international opportunities. We would greatly appreciate if you can pass the information about our program on to your students. If you believe you have students at your university that would be interested in this unique opportunity, please inform them to contact us via info@beainstitute.org
