Welcome !!!

At the end of the academic year 2014-2015, the Master’s Programme in Southeast European Studies completes its first 16 years with 421 students from 36 countries. The past sixteen years have seen Southeastern Europe’s transformation from a European war zone to a region well on its way to integration into the European Union. Our multinational, multi-disciplinary Programme, founded during the Kosovo crisis, has taken part in that transition. Created in 1999 as part of the Royaumont Process, in its first years the Programme was supported by the Stability Pact for Southeastern Europe. It functions as an autonomous Postgraduate Programme of the Faculty of Political Science and Public Administration of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.

Based on its interdisciplinary character, this Programme aims at promoting a thorough understanding of the key political and economical issues of Southeast Europe. In addition to its academic aims, our Programme was founded with the explicit goal of promoting understanding and reconciliation in Southeastern Europe. It offers a unique opportunity for students from all over the region (and not only) to spend an academic year in Athens, learning about the region with and from each other.
