The Spring School “European Economic Policies” introduces students to the economic policies carried out by the institutions of the European Union. Students learn how economic policies are designed and coordinated in the world’s largest trading power. In particular, we discuss the design and the economic implications of monetary policies, trade policies, competition policies, the common agricultural policies (CAP) and regional policies. We also discuss how the European Union can be developed further, in particular in response to Brexit and protectionist sentiment in the US.
The University of Tübingen's Spring School offers a unique opportunity to debate challenges of economic policy that the European Union as well as other open economies are currently facing. Participants enjoy debates with academic experts as well as with local students from Tübingen.
The spring school starts with a visit to the European Central Bank or the Deutsche Bundesbank in Frankfurt (on April 15). Then the remainder of the program will be hosted at the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences at Tübingen University.



This program runs from April 15 – 27, 2019.

There will be an information session during the week of March 4. Further details to be provided soon.
