Founded in 1948, the European Institute (EI) is Columbia’s interdisciplinary center for teaching and research on Europe. It takes a continent-wide perspective on the region and its relations with the world. The EI organizes events on and off campus, supports faculty and student research, and manages an MA program in European History, Politics, and Society.
Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence
The European Institute at Columbia University is joining forces with the European Legal Studies Center at Columbia Law School to launch a new Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence at Columbia University.
This initiative receives funding from the European Union for the years 2018 to 2021. The Centre of Excellence conducts a range of activities including three research projects, a new full-semester course on EU diplomacy, and a series of events.
Drawing from 20 years of experience in top positions, EI board member and departing French Ambassador to the UN, François Delattre, offers sobering reflections on world affairs.
MA student Benjamin Diehl presented his thesis research at the fourth annual Columbia GSAS Master's SynThesis Competition: "Social Democracy with a Human Face: Parliamentarians and Working-Class Integration in Leipzig 1890-1912"
