The KNOWEU project; Enhancing Knowledge on Georgia’s EU Integration among Ethnic Minorities, is the topic of today’s programme. The project is co-funded by the European Union Erasmus+ Jean Monnet action which is designed to promote excellence in teaching and research in the field of European Union studies worldwide.

Our guest is Diana Lezhava, Administrative Director of the Center for Social Sciences (CSS) and a Research fellow at CSS Education and Development Program.

International collaboration in Art education differs in many ways and for many reasons from other fields of studies and is too often neglected or marginalized from the big picture. What are the specificities of international university collaboration in this field, why was it affected more than others by the Covid-19 pandemic effects and what are the future perspectives? In this episode we discuss these topics with Payam Gul Susanni from Yasar University in Izmir, Turkey.
