Study Programmes Master in European Governance

The Diplomacy Lab

The UNI.LU DIPLOMACY PROJECT is a student-centered, non-profit, cultural project of the University of Luxembourg dedicated to promoting the study and understanding of the major issues of international affairs. The project is organised in cooperation with the Italian Embassy in Luxembourg.

Through its activities (round tables, conferences, lectures, publications) the project aims to deepen knowledge, promote debate, and propose solutions to the challenges of European and international politics.

The students are at the heart of the UNI.LU DIPLOMACY PROJECT

Through the Young Researchers Committee, they help define the key topics of the project, select the speakers, and plan the events. In the course “Diplomacy in the Contemporary World”, they work towards joint publications on current issues and the role of diplomacy in an increasingly complex and interconnected world.

The project involves leading scholars as advisors for the policy-oriented research with an equally strong commitment to education and training, conferences, and advice on international trends.

Its work is characterized by an interdisciplinary approach and favors the active involvement of institutional actors, research centers, think tanks and analysts in the field of international relations.
