Social Policies & Pragmatic Tolerance in Amsterdam is a summer programme created and run by the Summer Programmes Office of the Graduate School of Social Sciences at the University of Amsterdam.
This three-week programme gives students an in-depth look at some of the social policies of the Netherlands. Subjects such as immigration, multiculturalism, drugs and sex work will be addressed by various prominent guest lecturers and educational site visits. Dr. Leon Deben will moderate and oversee the entire program as well as provide lectures on his areas of expertise. Students will be expected to complete all required reading for every class, complete small writing assignments, and a short presentation.
Students will be from various universities around the world. An international classroom will lend to the overall learning experience for the students.
Some scholarships are available for this programme.
