    Armando Guida

    Italian

    Would you recommend a IUIES course? And WHY? During the PhD “Trans-border policies for daily life” that I attended, I had a deep knowledge of the main European structures, from a legal, economic and political point of view. I had a wider outlook of the European processes with a particular focus on the regional problems and on the trans-border policies: cohesion and integration of the border areas, with a political, economic, social and cultural perspective. I also studied related topics such as the transformations of the contemporary society, the international migrations and the multi-ethnic societies. I particularly liked these topics and I developed them in my PhD thesis “Il debito estero dei Paesi poveri: analisi e ipotesi di soluzione” (The foreign debt of the poor Countries: analysis and hypotheses of solution). Later on I put the PhD topics to good use through a research about the immigration for IRPET of Florence (Istituto Regionale Programmazione Economica Toscana). Would I suggest a IUIES course? The answer is yes, because the studied topics are worthwhile and of topical interest.

    Would you recommend a IUIES course? And WHY? Concerning me, I recommend all the IUIES courses, because all of them are interactive, interesting, full of information’s and very useful for those who wants to fallow a carrier in research field, at the EU Commission or in diplomacy field.

    Would you recommend a IUIES course? And WHY? My experience with the master in International Peace Operators has been positive.

This is the why of my recommending a IUIES course.

  • Miranda Nano (Saliasi)

    Albanian

    Would you recommend a IUIES course? And WHY? I would recommend an IUIES course for sure. Personally I got a lot of information about EU and its institutions, how they work and their functions. I learned about the Policies and programmes of EU for the member countries as well as the candidate and pre candidate countries. The citizens of Europe do not know too much about EU. The Albanian perception as well is too weak and superficial about the membership and challenges of becoming member of European family. It is our role to inform them, to form their opinion and to influence on them perception.

    Would you recommend a IUIES course? And WHY? Yes, I would. Because it is an excellent opportunity to broaden one’s knowledge of the ways the European political mechanisms function. And it is also a good chance to learn how to use the professional English vocabulary and enlarge it. Besides one learns a lot about other European countries from informal communications with fellow students as IUIES courses usually are taught to students coming from various countries.
