Warsaw Euro-Atlantic Summer Academy
Natolin, July 2013
Successful transitions to democracy and market economy require political will, indigenous leadership and a long-term commitment of resources. These factors are sustained by local ownership and understanding of democratic institutions and processes, without which systemic change often falters. Improving the knowledge base amongst decision-makers, experts, opinion leaders as well as broader groups of society played a key role in the successful post-communist transitions in Central Europe in the 1990s, framing economic and political reforms, and paving the way to NATO and EU memberships. Today, support is offered to EU Eastern Partnership countries.
The College of Europe Natolin, the German Marshall Fund of the United States and the Polish-American Freedom Foundation establish a program titled: Warsaw Euro-Atlantic Summer Academy. WEASA aims to work with analysts and policy advisers from Eastern Europe and South Caucasus on systemic transformation, European Union integration and transatlantic relations.
WEASA will present a system of values and mechanisms essential for building a modern civil society. It will reveal the political, social and economic foundations of modern Western democracies, especially the European Union and the transatlantic community. The Academy will offer support to analytical and advisory institutions and groups in formulating transformation programs for individual countries as well as in evaluating operations implemented by various public policy bodies.
