The REEES Centre at the University of Graz (Austria) together with the Shota Rustaveli University Batumi (Georgia) has organized Summer Schools on EU Law in the South Caucasus (EULISC) in 2013 and 2014 within the Jean-Monnet Program. The summer school hosted 25 students from all countries of the wider Caucasus region as well as from Europe and offered a platform to discuss and elaborate on current topics in the field of EU law with legal and political relevance for the states of the South Caucasus. Academic experts from both Europe and the Caucasus combined to teach EU law with the specific environment of the region in mind. The EU strives to define an overall strategy that combines the support for democracy in the countries of the region and a peaceful resolution to its protracted conflicts. Hence, a specific emphasis was placed on the legal instruments of the EU at work in its Eastern Neighborhood policy. In this way, the summer schools dealt with those contemporary legal challenges which are both actual and relevant to the EU-South Caucasus context.
