The Rome Statute came into force in 2002, after the ratification of 60 States. In addition to founding the Court and defining crimes of genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and - starting with the 2010 amendments - the crime of aggression, the Rome Statute sets new standards for the representation of victims in the House, and ensures fair trials and defense rights.

First, about three quarters of EU legislation is implemented at local or regional level, so local and regional representatives needed to have a say in the development of new EU laws. Second, there were concerns about a widening gap between the public and the process of European integration; involving the elected level of government closest to the citizens was one way of closing the gap. Within the European Union local and regional authorities have lobbied for an increased say in EU affairs. This resulted in the creation by the Maastricht Treaty of the European Committee of the Regions, and provision for member states to be represented in the Council of the EU by ministers from their regional governments.



When: The period of the courses runs from the 15/01/2018 till 14/01/2019 (You can also take part only to the courses and lessons chosen)

Opportunity Description: The CoR is the first EU body that developed and delivered two MOOCs on "Europe's regions, the EU institutions and policy-making" (2015) and "The EU budget and funding for regions and cities" (2016), which reached more than 15,000 participants worldwide. Building on this successful experience, the CoR is launching a third MOOC focusing on "How to make the most of EU resources for regions and cities". The MOOC will provide relevant information on present and future EU policies and programmes, as well as practical tools and examples of available funding opportunities at regional and local level.

The course will be available on Iversity, an online learning platform, and will include videos, factsheets, infographics and web-streamed live debates with Q&A from the course participants. Moreover, course followers will be able to interact via their learning journals in the course platform. During the first six weeks of the course (15 January-23 February 2018), followers will focus on one specific theme per week and will evaluate their learning progress via assignments and a weekly quiz. Studying time will be about 1.5 hours per week. The course material will remain online for one year, so that after the first six weeks learners can work through the course material in their own pace. The course is co-created with several Directorates-General of the European Commission – Regional and Urban Policy; Budget; Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion; Agriculture and Rural development; Eurostat – as well as the European Investment Bank, Interreg Europe and URBACT. The course is free of charge, open to anyone interested in EU and regional and local affairs, and accessible on all devices.

Published in Education

International Career Festival is an incredible opportunity for young students interested in the world of international affairs. But this is only possible by staff working behind the scenes, not just during the days of the festival but before it happens.

The preparation of the festival starts in July, when the association “Giovani nel mondo” selects both ex participants of previous editions and new forces using networks, advertisements and encouraging people to spread the voice.

In order to train the staff, the association organizes workshops and training sessions in September in which they explain everything about the festival, how it works, what they will have to do. Tutors are the first and substantial contact with the participants, bringing them to the event by emails with instructions and steps to follow. In the event, they are responsible for sharing information about which tasks should participants fulfil.

The staff gives information about what is happening in the games, informs the others about extra events and takes care of the accomodation.

Organizing events is not always a simply task, sometimes it requires great decisional skills, since there could be many things to cope with. The International Carreers Festival would not be possible without the planning of directors of 2017 games and staff, who helped to build the event as a hole. 

The most important projects among which you can choose are: Rome MUN (the largest diplomatic simulation of the United Nations), Rome Business Game (dedicated to the business world, international markets, marketing and business management) , Rome Press Game (dedicated to the international world of  journalism).

Determination, willpower and commitment are essential ingredients to achieve one’s goals.

An example of how it is possible to make a dream come true is represented by Eleonora Mantovani, program director of the Rome Press Game 2017. Rome Press Game is the first world simulation of a newsroom, on different levels (Radio, Web and Television). When she was only 25, after several experiences in journalism and collaborations with many online newspapers, she was chosen to cover this role, which entails high responsibilities.

“I tried, with the supervision of the president of “Giovani nel Mondo” association Daniela Conte, to make the Press Game the heart of the International Careers Festival, the voice of the Festival, thanks to the work of 85 participants. With regards to the organization, it is difficult to be able to create dynamic and multicultural teams, and not to distinguish people according to their nationality, so as to allow all of them to experiment with the three levels of radio, TV and writing. It has also been challenging to find skilled tutors.

“Tutors have been excellent in their work and they worked in a professional way”.
Team 1 was coached by the young journalist, Arianna Alessi, graduated in Communication, passionate about semiotics and symbols. She published articles related to fashion and contemporary art. In the last year Arianna ghostwrote for Huffington Post and collaborated with the press office of the 16th Art Quadriennal of Rome.

The aim of the Rome Press Game is to let people understand their aspirations and skills. Eleonora Mantovani’s main suggestion was to work better and better, to not be discouraged, and to send the curriculum, as she did. She accepted the challenge: chairing the press game and go on with her academic career at the same time. Her work has been recognized.

“There will always be people who will criticize you, many obstacles, but it is important to be determined to face our challenges better and better.”

 

Emilia Mazzullo

 

The International Careers Festival 2017 in Rome concentrated, for instance, on press, business, UN, etc., and bringing multicultural, educated, creative and enthusiastic young people together from many parts of the world, almost comes to its end. However, we tried to find out their opinion about the Festival right inside the UNINT, while they were walking around in the corridors of the University, or drinking coffee in the cafeteria. Despite the classes of the Roman University were closed, many students purposely attended the building for having the chance to visit stands of several international organizations in cooperation or social field in order to get information about job and study opportunities, but also to meet new people coming from different countries who have different language background.

Although, the best way to understand UNINT students’ impression and feeling about the festival was to ask Sara and Federico.

 

“It’s all about a world without borders, where everyone gets the same chances. That’s what the festival means to me. Students coming from all over the world remind

me the genuine beauty of one world’s utopia,” – says Sara, a student at the third year of the Law Faculty of the UNINT.

Federico, instead, seemed to be more concrete about the values of this brief international experience. “In my personal opinion as an economy student at the same University, the festival and his participants show the unfair competition among Italians and foreign students in the job market. We luck some important skills such as team leading, problem solving, time management, naturally related to foreign students’ mindset and high demanded by companies. Plus, foreign students normally have multi-language abilities, while in Italy we still need to work on language flexibility. Indeed, the main problem of Italian workers abroad is the lucking effective communication that they do not learn during the studies,” – he adds.

Through the eyes of Italian students is possible to report feedbacks of this event, most of the students is thinking about of being a future participant as evidence of festival’s ability to attract people thanks its innovative programmes.
