Excursions and Dialogues



ZEI brings our students together with experts and practitioners of EU governance and regulation, many of them being ZEI alumni.

During these Europe Dialogues, practitioners from EU institutions, governmental administrations and international organizations provide an insight into their respective field of work.


Each year students attend excursions to Brussels, Luxembourg, and the German capital, Berlin. During these excursions, ZEI Fellows (our students) visit the EU institutions, international organizations, companies and German governmental bodies related to EU affairs. While experiencing the EU in practice, ZEI Fellows can network with alumni and exchange ideas with practitioners.

Here is the report from the current class about their excursion to Brussels and Luxembourg.  

ZEI Fellows visit the following institutions:

European Commission

European Parliament

European Council

Court of Justice of the European Union

European Commission Delegation to Germany

European External Action Service

United Nations

German Parliament

German Federal Foreign Office


Welcome Week

The first week of the master program is dedicated to welcoming our students to ZEI and the city of Bonn. The program includes appointments and visits to the European Commission delegation to Bonn, the United Nations, the University of Bonn International Office, a city tour, the House of German History museum and socializing with Alumni. The Welcome Week also includes introductory tutorials on European Law and Economics and concludes with inter-cultural training sessions. The welcome week is an opportunity for our students to get to know each other and the city before the lectures begin.
