TeDEUSS – Teaching and Debating EU Small states’ Security

TeDEUSS – Teaching and Debating EU Small states’ Security

Jean Monnet Chair in EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies held by Dr. Tomáš Weiss.

The aim of TeDEUSS is to expand and deepen the teaching of European Union studies at Charles University. It addresses the role of small states in the European Union’s foreign, security and defence policy, focusing on the specific character, needs and means of the small states. The Czech Republic belongs to the majority of EU members that are small states and the future EU experts who are educated at Charles University need to understand the particularities of small state behaviour and politics.

TeDEUSS activities include courses for students, activities targeted at groups outside the university, series of public debates, and specific research on small states in European security.

The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
