Program Overview

Program Description:
Coastal Dubrovnik, an ancient walled town on the Adriatic Sea, traces its founding to eighth-century Romans. Today, with much of its medieval architecture remaining, and with picturesque sidewalk cafes, Dubrovnik still radiates the distinctive charm of old Europe—attracting vacationers from all parts of the world. The transition from communism has been particularly difficult in South Eastern Europe because in addition to the necessary economic and political reforms, it has often been accompanied by state collapse and ethnic conflict. In this program, students will examine these issues through a variety of lenses. Due to The Florida State University’s long-standing relationships in the Balkan region - including collaboration with the 300-year old University of Zagreb - participants will have the opportunity to discuss these issues with students, policy makers, and faculty from the region while experiencing life in several of the former Yugoslav states. Since Bosnia, Croatia and Montenegro are at differing points in the journey toward EU and NATO membership, and the length of their independence varies, participants will gain insight into how the issues vary over time as well.

Setting Description:
Program participants will be housed in comfortable apartments and/or hotel rooms within walking distance from the old town.
