The International Summer School ‘Rethinking the Culture of Tolerance’ is a joint program of the University of Milano-Bicocca, the University of Sarajevo, and the University of East Sarajevo. The sixth edition of the Summer School in 2019, titled “European Integration after the Fall of the Berlin Wall”, dedicated to the thirtieth anniversary of the revolutionary year 1989, will be hosted by the University of Sarajevo and its Center for Interdisciplinary Studies. It will examine problems and contradictions faced by the evolving European societies, with a focus on the post-communist countries involved in the process of EU integrations over the past three decades. It marks the conclusion of the second three-year cycle of the School, previous editions being devoted to “Europe, Borders and Migrations” (University of East Sarajevo, 2017) and “Groups, Conflicts and Reconciliation” (University of Milano-Bicocca, 2018). The fall of the Berlin wall has been celebrated as a milestone in the advancement of human freedom. But, it also gave rise to new concerns and issues regarding institutional and political practices, as well as the everyday life of citizens, within the frame of an emerging European space. The remembrance of its legacy is of crucial importance today: while the ‘Iron Curtain’ has lost both its material and symbolic power, new political, social and economic cleavages and conflicts have emerged across European societies, bringing new challenges to the project of the European integration.
