Latvian Christian academy has received an awarding ERASMUS+ “Jean Monnet Module” Plaque from EC EACEA (Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency) in May, 2017. As the following letter states, “The purpose of this plaque is twofold. It serves primarily as a label signifying quality in European integration studies and represents the achievements of your Jean Monnet Module in this field. At the same time it also provides visibility for the Jean Monnet Action, presenting it as focal point within and outside your institution for the promotion of European issues.”

SUMMARY OF THE PROJECT.

The Module “European Social Entrepreneurship with the Future” (ESEF) is part of European action which aims at stimulating teaching, research and reflection in the field of European integration studies in the form of Social Entrepreneurship (SE). Main purpose is stimulating of more extensive knowledge and professional interest on the SE development for students who do not come automatically into contact with European studies: Theology & religion studies, Church art, and Social work students. Module will foster creation of entrepreneurial spirit as the way of thinking and concrete action. There will be implemented a website, roundtable debate and international conference together with European Centre of Workers’ Questions (EZA) on European SE processes, results of which will be disseminated to all 39 European partner institutions of EZA through EZA. Planned roundtable debate with Latvian policy makers aim to initiate activities in promoting national legislation for ES in Latvia. The Module is expected to enhance students’ competence in organizing social enterprises after their graduation, and adopts innovative method of integrative theology in explaining EU integration issues in connection with human factor (anthropology). Teaching and research activities by young researchers in team with professors involved and professionals in the field will create solutions for integration problems, empower students to see SE as a force for social change in Europe. The Module is designed from Judeo-Christian anthropological perspective to increase the culture of reciprocity in society and to gain valuable tools in preparing students to leave an impact to the lives of local communities for cohesive actions. New researchers will gain experience for excellence in teaching on EU integration topics and will apply innovative methodology of research impact assessment model and that of integrative theology approaching EU integration issues.

THE MODULE WILL FOSTER the dialogue between policy makers, academics in order to enhance  governance of the EU policies regarding SE in Latvia.
