In mid-2020 The European Studies Association was awarded the Jean Monnet project “Teaching the Teachers beyond Brexit”. Alongside our co-sponsors of this project, RMIT University EU Center and Swinburne University, the association went ahead with organising four events in Melbourne and Sydney.

As many will remember late 2020 and 2021 would be extended periods of Covid 19 lockdown restrictions especially in Melbourne which made organising these events very difficult. The organisers of this project were determined to have as much of this project in a face-to-face setting relying on virtual mode in a limited manner.

The organisers of this event included Professor Bruno Mascitelli, Professor Bruce Wilson and Assoc. Professor Gosia Klatt.
