Happy faces during our second International Study Programme (ISP) from 24 to 28 June 2019 – this time we met in Budapest, Hungary’s beautiful capital city. The Budapest Business School was our host. Again, over 40 students and their teachers from six countries participated and continued their work and research on European identities and behaviour. On the programme: lectures about contemporary Hungary, stereotype and prejudice in general, practical exercises in order to reflect on behaviour and train self-awareness, and of course several sessions of SYMLOG observation practice. Time for analyses and report concluded this really intensive 5-days-programme. Budapest with its impressive architecture and its very friendly people was a wonderful experience.
