The School of International Studies has been awarded the 2022 APSIA Innovation Award
The Innovation Award for Professional Development Programming celebrates new or innovative programming that helped graduate students develop professionally in the fields of international affairs within the last year.
The SSI initiative was selected from a list of seven nominees, with all other programs coming from US institutions.
The Applied Workshops on Global Affairs, offered by the School of International Studies, bridges the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical skills. The Workshops introduce students to specific problems of international relations, European affairs and policies, and international security by adopting a practical approach and innovative teaching methods.
Students are involved in simulations, debates, role-play, etc., by qualified instructors with direct knowledge in the relevant field. It builds on the School's alumni network and on a series of collaborations with think tanks, NGOs and international organizations.
Created in 1989, the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA), is dedicated to the improvement of graduate education in international affairs. The School of International Studies at the University of Trento has gained affiliate status in 2021 and is proud to be the only Italian institution in the APSIA family.
