Belgrade – Diplomacy Law


ELSA Belgrade is organising its Winter ELSA Law School on Diplomacy Law, which will take place in Belgrade from March 12 - 19, 2023. 

During our WELS, participants will get the chance to explore both the old and the new centre of Diplomacy in Europe and the world. We are joining forces with the Faculty of Law and Ministry of Foreign Affairs to bring you this 'crash course' in EU Policy Making. The focus area of the Winter edition will be civil rights, touching on policy discussions related to human security, migration, and anti-discrimination.

Packed with interactive lectures and institutional visits, this winter programme attracts students and young professionals who wish to broaden their knowledge of European institutions, European law and the European decision-making process.

At the same time, participants will have the chance to visit one of the oldest European cities, the Balkan jewel on the rivers Sava and Dunav, which will charm them with its modern and old parts.

And if you wondered about our nightlife, have you heard that Belgrade never sleeps?
