The Jean Monnet Module on European Climate Diplomacy aims to complement and to broaden the scope of the existing teaching courses on EU policies and policy-making of the undergraduate programme of the Department of Political Science and Public Administration of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece.

The Jean Monnet Module:

  • promotes research and first teaching experience for young researchers and scholars and practitioners in European Union issues;
  • fosters the publication and dissemination of the results of academic research;
  • creates interest in the EU and constitutes the basis for future poles of European knowledge, particularly in Partner Countries;
  • fosters the introduction of a European Union angle into mainly non EU related studies;
  • delivers tailor-made courses on specific EU issues relevant for graduates in their professional life.

This Jean Monnet Module will be in a continuous interplay with the UNESCO Chair on Climate Diplomacy, hosted also by the IEIP. These two programmes, by working together, will contribute to the visibility of their projects and strengthen cooperation at an international and European level.

The structure of the Jean Monnet Module integrates the following activities:

  • A new undergraduate course on climate diplomacy;
  • A Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC simulation;
  • A public lecture on European climate diplomacy and the Sustainable Development Goals;
  • A tailor-made seminar on climate change addressed to high-school and elementary-school teachers.
