Students' Background


The Eastwest European Institute, in partnership with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and Associazione Diplomatici, is glad to propose the new program Study Mission Rome 2022.

The Study Mission aims to provide university students with an understanding of the relevance of Rome as a diplomatic, cultural, and economic centre through meetings with political actors, cultural representatives, and companies. At the same time, the participants will have the chance to build a network with students coming from all over the world.

Participants will elaborate analysis on such controversial topics as sustainability, Agenda 2030, and climate change.

The stay in Rome will also be a unique opportunity to interact with Rome’s ruling class.

By the end of the program, participants will have gained a deeper understanding of the consequences of environmental problems and how they afflict the Earth.


The structure of the Study Mission is divided as follows:

  • preparatory webinars*: 1h30-long from 16:30 to 18:00 from October 3rd to 21st  
  • 5 days of high-level meetings in Rome inside the central Italian institutions such as the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Residences of the President of the Italian Republic, the Palace of the Italian Government, and the city hall of Rome “Campidoglio”, where the Bid Committee for Expo 2030 Rome will illustrate you the reasons behind the candidature of the Eternal City. Moreover, you will meet representatives from the Italian public/private sector, diplomats, experts, professors, opinion-makers, and members of the main international institutions located in Rome, like FAO. Finally, you will have the great chance to visit historically important locations in Rome, both from a religious-cultural standpoint and from a social-political point of view, which makes Rome a unique city in the world.


In the months preceding the simulation, the students will take part in some preparatory webinars for an hour and a half each. Four webinars of 1h30 duration (from 16:30 to 18:00) will be held from October 3rd to 21st.  

In this way, students will have the opportunity to have a complete understanding of the international role of Rome and Italy in general, and the importance of Agenda 2030.

Moreover, the knowledge of the functioning of the institutions located in Rome, techniques of public speaking, and negotiation processes will be deepened during the webinars.

Remote activities will be delivered through the Zoom platform.
