University of Amsterdam
AUIS is partnering with the University of Amsterdam (UvA) through the Zeytun Academic Exchange initiative. Students participating in this program will have the opportunity to compare and contrast the KRG and Iraq’s political and economic systems with those of Amsterdam and Europe as a whole, both through rigorous coursework and research, as well as in-country experience. In addition to attending a course on the relationship between politics and the economy. AUIS students in the Zeytun program will host a delegation of UvA students for 10 days. They will also visit their Dutch counterparts in Amsterdam to experience first-hand the political, social, cultural, and economic aspects they learned about in the classroom. In IRIS’s spirit of cultural exchange and dialogue, Zeytun students from AUIS and the University of Amsterdam will be required to work on joint research projects.
