Area 4 : Europe in the world
The IEE-ULB ‘Europe in the World’ crosscutting area of research examines the European Union in terms of global governance; i.e. the interactions between global policy and European policies.
The fourth area of research in brief
This is about IEE-ULB research actors studying the involvement of the EU in global governance through its interactions with other political, legal, economic and social models in international exchanges. This area has two specificities. On the one hand it examines these interactions in different geographic areas (e.g. Russia, Caucasaus, Balkans; Asia; Americas; Mediterranean area; etc.). On the other hand it aims to go deeper into recent themes such as, for example, the production and useage of global public goods or cosmopolitanism and the universality of human rights.
