WEASA was founded to present the political, social and economic foundations of modern democracies in the European Union and the transatlantic community and further promote the values of freedom, pluralism and peace.
WEASA is held annually in July. It is hosted by the Natolin Campus of the College of Europe in Warsaw, Poland. All WEASA sessions are held in English, therefore sufficient proficiency in English is required.
The founders cover all reasonable travel expenses and provide board and lodging for all WEASA participants.
