CPG’s Online Winter Academies 2021
In keeping with its mission to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and ideas between Europe and Southeast Asia, CPG regularly organizes academies onMigration and Displacement – Concepts, Realities, Management German Public Law & the German Constitutional System Human Rights
These academies combine lecture, classes, and workshop components. Lectures are usually presented by an academic (the course leader or leaders) and are, in general, a listening and note-taking exercise. Classes present an opportunity to work through problem sets or case studies, present papers and discuss them, and to discuss the previous lecture with a class teacher and classmates.
Each academy also offers a daily discussion forum, giving you the opportunity to share ideas with other participants, pose questions and explore the subject further. They are taught by renowned scholars and experienced practitioners, all of them experts in their respective fields.
Every academy is a truly international program, regularly attracting a diverse range of people from all over the world. The majority of participants are currently studying at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, alongside a number of professionals from a range of business sectors.
Each academy offers an intensive program of postgraduate-level study and potential applicants should therefore be confident that they are academically and linguistically prepared for such a program.
Participants are expected to:
- undertake preparatory reading before each class,
- attend all seminar sessions and lectures, and
- be actively engaged with their seminar topics.

Moving online in 2021
To provide an opportunity to gain comprehensive, cutting-edge knowledge in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to take some of the best features of our academies online and offer them in a new, financially accessible format that allows participation from both Europe and Asia.
Live attendance of seminar classes will be necessary, and we will try and schedule these compulsory live classes in the morning and afternoon to include both time zones.
Lectures can be accessed live and as recordings to allow an opportunity for revision and to help mitigate against connectivity issues.
To help the organizer with selecting only those seriously committed to the courses, a moderate fee will be charged:
Migration and Displacement – Concepts, Realities, Management: EUR 120
German Public Law & the German Constitutional System: EUR 180
Human Rights: EUR 150
This covers access to online materials, videos and content, access to live classes, break-out sessions and each Academy’s extra-curricular events.
We are delighted to offer a small number of partly & fully funded places for each Academy.
