Both the capital of Belgium and the European Union, Brussels hosts important EU organizations as well as the headquarters of NATO. Students become acquainted with EU matters and structures and participate in contemporary debates on the evolution of regional integration in Europe. The city itself reflects both the traditions of multicultural Belgium and the rapid growth and influence of EU organizations.

After Brussels, the program stops in Paris, where students visit important international organizations such as OECD or UNESCO. As an artistic and cultural capital and the center of Francophone identity, Paris offers a range of cultural activities and experiences.
