Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to let you know that the Summer Institute on Alcohol, 
Drugs and Addiction will be held at the International School for 
Humanities and Social Sciences of the Universiteit van Amsterdam from 
July 8- 20, 2007.

The Summer Institute offers students of various disciplines and 
professions a great opportunity to advance their knowledge in the field 
of addiction studies in an international environment. The Institute is 
an intensive two-week summer programme that seeks to provide an 
interdisciplinary approach to the study of addiction and 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. There are NFP fellowships available for Summer Institute 
participants from 57 selected countries. For more information, see 
http://www.nuffic.nl/nfp/ and click "fellowships for short courses".

We expect a 2007 class of approximately 15-20 students. 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, Janhuib Blans, Lala Ashenberg Straussner, and 
Mirjam Schieveld. Applications must be addressed to the Universiteit van 
Amsterdam at the address below. You can visit our web site
