    The “EPOG 2″ Inter­na­tion­al Mas­ter’s pro­gramme has been launched in 2018 and is part of the EPOG “fam­i­ly”. It includes two options: I) Inter­na­tion­al Macro­eco­nom­ics, Finan­cial Reg­u­la­tions and Sus­tain­abil­i­ty and II) Devel­op­ment and Sus­tain­abil­i­ty: Poli­cies, States and Cor­po­ra­tions. It is coor­di­nat­ed by the Uni­ver­si­ty of Paris 13 (France) and involves six addi­tion­al part­ners: Uni­ver­sité Paris Cité (France), Berlin School of Eco­nom­ics and Law (Ger­many), Kingston Uni­ver­si­ty (Unit­ed King­dom), Uni­ver­si­ty of Roma Tre (Italy) and Uni­ver­si­ty of the Wit­wa­ter­srand (South Africa).

    The EPOG 2 pro­gramme is inde­pen­dent from the EPOG+ Eras­mus Mundus Joint Mas­ter Degree, even though con­tent sim­i­lar­i­ties exist with Major B and Minor C2: for Major B and Minor C2, the con­tent are sim­i­lar dur­ing the first year (in Berlin, Roma and Johan­nes­burg). The struc­ture and con­tent of the sec­ond year are dif­fer­ent, even tough the pro­grammes are shar­ing a few cours­es in Paris. EPOG 2 does not receive fund­ing from the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion and is not labelled “Eras­mus Mundus”.

    Both EPOG+ and EPOG 2 are renewed ver­sions of the EPOG (Eco­nom­ic POli­cies in the age of Glob­al­i­sa­tion). The orig­i­nal EPOG pro­gramme has been cre­at­ed in 2013 and fund­ed by the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion in the frame­work of the “Eras­mus Mundus Mas­ter’s Cours­es” action until 2019. Com­mit­ted with plu­ral­ism in eco­nom­ics, the orig­i­nal EPOG Eras­mus Mundus Mas­ter’s Course (2013–2019) has attract­ed each year more than 800 appli­cants com­ing from more than 100 countries. 

    For a brief com­par­i­son between EPOG+ and EPOG 2:

    The EPOG+ pro­gramme has been award­ed in June 2022 a “Unesco chair”.

    “UNITWIN/UNESCO Chairs Pro­gramme pro­motes inter­na­tion­al inter-uni­ver­si­ty coop­er­a­tion and net­work­ing to enhance insti­tu­tion­al capac­i­ties through knowl­edge shar­ing and col­lab­o­ra­tive work. Through this net­work, high­er edu­ca­tion and research insti­tu­tions all over the globe pool their resources, both human and mate­r­i­al, to address press­ing chal­lenges and con­tribute to the devel­op­ment of their soci­eties. In many instances, the net­works and chairs serve as think­tanks and bridge­builders between acad­e­mia, civ­il soci­ety, local com­mu­ni­ties, research and pol­i­cy-mak­ing. They have proven use­ful in inform­ing pol­i­cy deci­sions, estab­lish­ing new teach­ing ini­tia­tives, gen­er­at­ing inno­va­tion through research and con­tribut­ing to the enrich­ment of exist­ing uni­ver­si­ty pro­grammes while pro­mot­ing cul­tur­al diver­si­ty. In areas lack­ing exper­tise, chairs and net­works have evolved into poles of excel­lence and inno­va­tion at region­al or sub-region­al lev­els. They also con­tribute to strength­en­ing North-South-South coop­er­a­tion.“

    The pro­gramme ben­e­fits from the activ­i­ty of two associations:

    Friends of EPOGIt gath­ers organ­i­sa­tions and indi­vid­u­als (such as renowned researchers or prac­ti­tion­ers) from both aca­d­e­m­ic and non-aca­d­e­m­ic insti­tu­tions, will­ing to sup­port the pro­gramme (finan­cial sup­port, ad-hoc par­tic­i­pa­tion in sem­i­nars, dis­sem­i­na­tion and pro­mo­tion, etc.).
    EPOG Stu­dents and Alum­ni Asso­ci­a­tion (EPOG SAA)It is made of the EPOG+ stu­dents and alum­ni, as well as the alum­ni from the EPOG pro­gramme (which has been fund­ed under the Eras­mus Mundus pro­gramme between 2013 and 2019) and the stu­dents and alum­ni from the “EPOG 2” pro­gramme. Its activ­i­ties include net­work­ing with aca­d­e­m­ic and non-aca­d­e­m­ic actors around the world, con­tribut­ing to the pro­gramme (through sem­i­nars, men­tor­ship, intern­ship and job pro­pos­als, dis­sem­i­na­tion and pro­mo­tion…), devel­op­ing an online social net­work, organ­is­ing an annu­al meet­ing… The asso­ci­a­tion is also the joint-edi­tor of the “EPOG Pol­i­cy briefs”.
