The WiP – Study missions are part of an innovative training format devised to offer to university students the opportunity to come face-to-face with today’s most pressing challenges in international relations.
They are based on a hands-on approach to learning, in which students become the protagonists in the dialogue with key interlocutors in institutions, diplomacy, global business and civil society.

Participation in a WiP – Study Mission project means:

  • Direct contact with the main actors of the international arena
  • To go beyond the textbook and learn about the issues first-hand, directly on the field
  • To understand the world of international relations and open new and exciting professional paths
  • To re-examine personal convictions and measure your beliefs with different cultures and interests.


The eastwest European Institute provides the 5 best students participating in the WiP- Study Missions with the opportunity to present an application for an internship in one of following partners Companies and Associations:


The WiP – Study Mission project will help students to understand the mechanisms of power of the Russian economic and political leadership and will orient participants to elaborate analysis on controversial topics: Transatlantic relations with the US, Russian influence in foreign electoral processes and its role in war-torn countries.

The stay in Moscow will also be a unique opportunity to interact with Russia’s ruling class.
By the end of the program, students will have gained a deeper understanding of Europe’s most influential neighbor.
Participants will also have the opportunity to discover in practice how dialogue and collaboration constitute always an asset: the extraordinary economic and commercial partnership between Russia and EU, despite the ongoing sanctions regime, make this relationship inevitable and even indispensable.


The structure of the WiP – Study Mission is divided into three parts:

  • A webinar course held by experts, specialized in Russian history, organized in 4 lessons between 2 and 20 September, with special focus on the relations between Russia and the West.
  • In Moscow, 7 days of meetings with Institutions, diplomats, managers, professors and opinion makers.
  • Site-visits to historically important areas of the city, exploring secrets and peculiarities of the local communities, religion and culture.
