About the Keynote speaker

The Keynote speaker, prof. Luca Verzichelli, is PACTUM Coordinator and Full Professor of Political Science at the University of Siena. He has held several offices at the University, including Dean of the Faculty of Political Sciences (2009 to 2012), member of the Administrative Board (2013-2016), and Vice-Rector for International Affairs (2016-2022). His work on Mediterranean cooperation and capacity-building, and his rootedness in international engagement with students, institutions, and societies are core assets to achieving PACTUM’s mission.

About PACTUM Project:

The PACTUM Project is a capacity-building project, co-funded by the European Commission Erasmus+ programme, aiming to develop a high-quality, multi-disciplinary and stimulating programme in social, political and behavioural sciences in Tunisia. Academic cooperation in a delicate and rapidly evolving field like that of social sciences – and in particular those disciplines which are central to the formation of future ruling classes and higher civil servants – is a crucial test for prospective cooperation among Tunisian HEIs and European HEIs engaging with capacity building activities.

The goals of the project:

  • exchange of degree planning experiences in the field of social sciences, organization of preparatory summer schools, design of a master’s course and involvement of social actors and public administration
  • converge on the crucial need to boost positive impact on students and mutual enrichment between European and Tunisian academics. 

PACTUM’ s main outcomes will be an integrating Master Program and three annual cycles of five summer schools dedicated to sustainability, good governance and public administration, democratic theories, and participation in the Mediterranean area.
