Russian-Armenian University hosted the 5th Summer Exchange program Network East–West, which is organized annually in collaboration with the Faculty of Law of Humboldt University in Berlin. This year, the program participants were working on the topic 'Democracy - Constitutional Elements to Build and Maintain the Democratic State'.
The program gathered 10 participants from each university, who were given subtopics and required to write research papers in pairs. The whole process was supported by 2 organizers and 2 tutors from RAU and HU. During the first week at RAU, students conducted extensive group work and made presentations on the given topics followed by intensive discussions.
The delegation of law students from Humboldt University had the opportunity to gain experience in a common internationally-oriented scientific environment and engage in an intercultural exchange, and also to get acquainted with the legal system of the Republic of Armenia by visiting the National Assembly, Office of the Human Rights Defender and Court of Cassation.
To complement the intensive academic and research-oriented program, the students from Germany also visited historical and cultural sights of Armenia.
The second part of the program continues in Berlin, where the delegations from RAU and Humboldt University have join the participants from Czech, Georgian, Hungarian, Latvian and Ukrainian partner universities, which will foster the comparative analysis to be conducted by the students. During the second week, the students will have the opportunity to share their findings with their peers and learn more about the German legal system.
Russian-Armenian University joined the Network East-West project in 2014 as a result of successful cooperation between the legal professionals of Russian-Armenian University and Humboldt University of Berlin.
