ÖGPW Empfehlungen für Summer (bzw. Winter-)schools

Im Sinne der Nachwuchsförderung hat der ÖGPW Vorstand eine Auswahl an Summer Schools zusammengestellt, die keineswegs erschöpfend ist und daher vor allem einen Einblick geben soll, wie groß das diesbezügliche Angebot ist.

Summer Schools ermöglichen es einem, Kurse zu spezifischen Themengebieten bzw. Methoden bei internationalen ExpertInnen zu besuchen und Kontakte zu NachwuchswissenschaftlerInnen aus anderen Ländern zu knüpfen. Im Fall der Teilnahme an einer Summer School haben ÖGPW Mitglieder seit neuestem die Möglichkeit, bei der ÖGPW einen Reisekostenzuschuss zu beantragen.

Die ÖGPW freut sich über weitere Empfehlungen für bzw. Erfahrungsberichte über Summer- und Winterschools!

Winter School on Federalism and Governance 2020. Federalism and Language

Universität Innsbruck & Eurac Bozen, 17.-28.02.2020

The Winter School is a two-week international postgraduate programme on federalism, regionalism and multilevel governance. Through an interdisciplinary and comparative approach, it explores how federalism can contribute to multilevel, integrated and  pluralistic decision-making. A wide range of lectures provides participants with the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of multilevel governance and government, especially from the perspectives of law and political science. The Winter School provides a cutting-edge international learning environment with world class scholars of various academic disciplines from around the globe running the courses and workshops on federalism and its challenges. The 2020 Winter School will focus on federalism and language. For one week at the University of Innsbruck and one week at Eurac Research, Bolzano-Bozen, participants will analyze the connections between language and federalism. For example, they will explore the correlation between language and law, the subnational or local regulation of language in multilevel systems as well as the challenges and opportunities of linguistic diversity. They will consider a wide range of case studies of symmetric and asymmetric federations, other multinational states and the European Union, including examples from Europe, North America, Africa and Asia. In addition, one entire day of the programme will be dedicated to the perspectives of international organizations such as the Council of Europe and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe in relation to multilingualism and its promotion, particularly in territorially diverse environments. Furthermore, the Winter School will provide insights into the multifaceted role language can play in federal systems in relation to education, the regulation of immigration and migrant integration, as well as institutional innovation. Besides numerous opportunities for discussion with leading experts on multilevel governance throughout the lectures, a variety of interactive sessions will also offer participants the chance to share knowledge and experience. Lectures, workshops, Q&A’s and discussion groups will all address the various connections between federalism and language through the comparison of various case studies.


The Winter School will examine a series of issues:


• What particular challenges does language pose for federal systems?

• How do constitutions deal with the subject of language and federalism?

• Are there asymmetries in language policies within multilevel systems?

• How are the decision-making powers relating to language policy distributed across different levels of government?

• What is the role played by courts when it comes to legal disputes in relation to language?

• Does linguistic diversity lead to political conflict? • What kind of language rights and policies exist in multilevel systems in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia?

• What are the challenges for linguistic minorities in federal states arising from new migration?

• What are the costs and benefits of language regulations and of federalism?

• What are the perspectives of international organizations on these issues?

• What lessons can be learned from comparative practice?


The 2020 Winter School examines these and other questions by combining theoretical expertise and relevant case studies. As such, the programme is a unique opportunity for young academics, postgraduate students, civil servants and practitioners to receive enhanced training on the theoretical and practical aspects of federalism.

Proposals referring to the following three interrelated fields are particularly welcomed:

• The role of media in transnational and global memory environments

• The interaction between space, sound, images and material objects

• Media and memory in the digital age
