Executive Summer School in Social Security

The EISS supports the organisation of the Executive Summer School in Social Security, a recognised post-graduate programme organised at the Faculty of Law of the KU Leuven in cooperation with professors from universities throughout Europe.

The Executive Summer School offers the possibility to look at social security from different disciplinary angles in an international setting. In two and a half weeks you will follow a crash course in the field of social security. Specially designed course materials are provided beforehand.

Registration for the Summer School of 2020 is now open

The 2019 edition of the Summer School welcomed 9 participants  in Leuven from 26 August to 10 September.  The participants came from 7 different countries, with diverse professional and educational backgrounds. This means that the multinational and multidisciplinary focus of the programme is also reflected in its participants!
