Nikola Ilić

My one-and-a-half-month research stay at the Europa-Institut has been an extraordinary academic experience. Professional staff, an impressive library and its supporting infrastructure, as well as the modern campus of the Saarland University, provide a firm guarantee for high-quality academic research and writing. In such an environment, a PhD student can become aware of endless research possibilities and be encouraged to conduct a research project even better than initially planned.

This research stay allowed me not only to extend my legal knowledge and exchange my experience with colleagues from different countries but also taught me how to explore my research potential far better and improve my analytical skills.

It was my pleasure and privilege to be a part of the SEE | EU Cluster of Excellence in European and International Law, which afforded me an experience of a lifetime and many cherished memories.
