Taking place in June 29 to July 12, this programme follows the success of the first Summer University at Bahçesehir University in Istanbul in last year, which focused on  the theme of mass violence, wars and genocides.

The 2014 Summer University will provide SOAS students with the opportunity to attend lectures by renowned university professors from 20 participating global universities. Students will also benefit from joint research projects and group activities, and also receive a certificate from the organisers and participating universities at the end of the programme.
