International Summer school ‘Rethinking the Culture of Tolerance’
Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Scholarship / Financial aid: accommodation and meals are covered by organisers

Date: 15 – 21 September 2014

Deadline: 5 July 2014

Open to: MA and PhD students, post-docs and researchers

Announcement follows


The question of tolerance is one of the most challenging in the contemporary world. A critical discourse on tolerance and toleration seems to have a particular weight in the context of post-war, but also post-socialist and post-Yugoslav societies of the Western Balkans. Many important steps towards the rebuilding of trust and integration of these societies have been already made, but there is still much work to be done. In that sense the Summer School aims not only to create the condition for a transfer of knowledge: we opt to exchange experiences among lecturers and students. The main topics we propose will be approached from different points of view, analyzing the most important dimensions concerning the concept of tolerance in an interdisciplinary perspective.

The lectures and seminars will focus on the following themes:

+Introduction to the philosophical concept of tolerance and limits of toleration;
+Human rights, everyday multiculturalism, and tolerance in education;
+Religious tolerance and its meaning today;
+Post-war societies and the reconstruction of trust: the culture of peace;
+European policies of toleration in a discourse of a stable peace.

The International Summer school ‘Rethinking the Culture of Tolerance’ The New Challenges of the European Integration is a joint program of the University of Milan-Bicocca, the University of East Sarajevo and the University of Sarajevo.


The School is addressed to MA and PhD students, post-docs and researchers. In particular the Summer school is open and free for students attending the MA and PhD courses at the University of East Sarajevo, the University of Sarajevo and the University of Milan-Bicocca.


The access to the first edition of the Summer school is free of any fee. In addition, the accommodation and meals will be offered by the organisers as well.


All interested applicants should apply by completing the enclosed form and send it along with a CV, academic transcript and short essay (300 words) on why they want to attend the summer school, to the following e-mail address:

The deadline for application is 5 July. The scientific committee will publish the list of the selected attendants 15 July 2014.
