The East European Summer School is the Centre’s oldest initiative. It was established in 1991 and started offering courses as part of a three-week international visiting scholarship programme in 1992. Each July, the Summer School offers academic sessions designed for young researchers from former Soviet republics, Central Europe, but also from Western Europe and America. The programme focuses on the region’s history and its contemporary affairs.

The Summer School’s programme consists of lectures, panel discussions, as well as visits to research institutions, archives and libraries in the city where the Summer School is taking place, as well as field trips and cultural events. Lecturers at the Summer School are the most outstanding specialists in their subjects from around the world. Some of the lectures are also published in Obóz and Przegląd Wschodni. The lectures are presented in Polish or English, or the language of the country where the external sessions of the Summer School take place (Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine in 1996 and 1997). In 1997, the trip was accompanied by A. Gieysztor and J. Bardach (Warsaw), N. Davies (Oxford), D. Beauvois (Paris) and M. Rywkin (New York). The professors were welcomed by the then President of Lithuania, Valdas Adamkus. The East European Summer School has hosted over 100 lecturers and over 600 graduates from 26 countries.
