Summer Institute on Alcohol, Drugs and Addiction in Amsterdam

The Summer Institute on Alcohol, Drugs and Addiction will be held at the International School for Humanities and Social Sciences at the Universiteit van Amsterdam from July 13- 26, 2008.
The Institute is an intensive two-week summer programme that seeks to provide an interdisciplinary approach to the study of addiction, as well as to promote opportunities for international networking among participants.
The Institute welcomes individuals with a focused interest in addiction research and treatment, Master's and PhD students, NGO staff working on addiction-related issues, professionals in human services, practitioners, and advocates.

The Institute's classes are intensive small-group seminars with discussions, excursions, faculty lectures and guest lectures by prominent people in the field.

The scientific director is Helen Levine, and this year's faculty includes Dennis McCarty, Lala Ashenberg Straussner, and Mirjam Schieveld. Applications must be addressed to the Universiteit van Amsterdam at the address below.
