The European Institute is internationally renowned for the multidisciplinary study of European politics, economics and societies. We have academic staff drawn from politics, law, economics, international relations, anthropology, geography, history, philosophy and social policy.
The European Institute comprises four externally-endowed chairs: the Eleftherios Venizelos Chair in Contemporary Greek Studies (Featherstone); the John Paulson Chair in European Political Economy (De Grauwe); the Sutherland Chair in European Institutions (Hobolt); and the Chair in Contemporary Turkish Studies (Özyürek).
We currently have an Academician of the Learned Society for Social Sciences (Featherstone) and an Associate Fellow of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (Fraser). Featherstone was bestowed Commander, Order of the Phoenix of the Hellenic Republic, for his contribution to improving the understanding of Greece abroad. Fraser was made Chevalier de la Légion d' honneur for services to intellectual and academic ties between Britain and France.
The Institute welcomes distinguished visitors from around the world. In recent years we have had visiting professors or fellows from Arena, Harvard, Potsdam, Oxford and Hertie as well as the European Parliament, the BBC and distinguished think-tanks such as the Centre for European Policy Studies, Policy Network, Centre for European Reform and Breughel.
Our Professional Services team are highly skilled and always on hand to support academic staff and students alike.
