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.
Pierre Vimont, Visiting Professor at the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University, reflects on the foreign policy of the European Union and on current calls for the EU to play a more active, geopolitical role.
