26 October 2016

Celebrating 20 years of ASERI

The Graduate School of Economics and International Relations of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (ASERI) celebrates 20 years of excellence in education. Since its first course in 1996, ASERI has been committed to providing a high quality training and to creating an exclusive multicultural learning environment to think and discuss about Politics and International Relations

During these 20 years, ASERI developed a four Masters portfolio (Master in International Relations, Master in International Cooperation and Development, Master in Economics and International Politics and Master in Middle Eastern Studies) and a great variety of other Higher Education courses and seminars addressed to graduates and young professionals.

In 20 years more than 100 academics and professionals joined the ASERI Faculty: professors from Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, together with visiting professors from eminent international Universities and experts from enterprises, organizations and institutions operating at a global level. This extremely diverse training team creates a very dynamic and multicultural setting, and stimulates constant development.

Thanks to its expertise and the multidisciplinary essence of its programs, ASERI welcomes every year a selected number of Italian and international students. The School received more than 1.100 students so far, among which more than 500 come from all over the world.

In 2016 ASERI honored its 20th anniversary with an array of events and concludes its celebrations hosting the International Conference “Ten years of protecting peace: UNIFIL (2006-2016)” on Tuesday November 15th.

The Conference will also celebrate the 10th anniversary of the United Nation Security Council Resolution 1701 and will draw an initial assessment of the outcome of these ten years of cooperation between UNIFIL and the Lebanese authorities, Army and population, as well as elaborating on the future role and challenges of the mission. The event will bring together academics as well as members of the Italian Armed Forces, who took part in the mission, and particularly General Claudio Graziano, Italian Chief of Defence Staff and former UNIFIL Head of Mission and Force Commander (2007-2010) (to learn more).
