The Institute for European Studies opens its doors on March 1st to everyone interested in “being part of a really European dynamic, at the nerve centre of Europe,” as our Pro-Chancellor, Didier Viviers, has so clearly explained.


The Open Courses at the Université Libre de Bruxelles provide candidates with the opportunity to dive into the university life, and to have a direct contact with students, professors and the university environment.

On Wednesday, March 1st, from 1:00 p.m to 4:00 p.m., we invite you to the course European Integration by History, taught by Professor Nicolas Verschueren. PhD in Contemporary History from ULB, Professor Verschueren’s theses focuses on the social dimension of the European construction, notably in the context of the restructuring of the coal industry.

Between 2010 and 2012, he was a scientific collaborator at the University of Luxembourg where he explored European industrial restructuring and conversion policy in south Luxembourg. In 2012, he spent a year as researcher at Johns Hopkins University. From 2013 to 2016, he was charged with FNSR researches to analyse the social consequences of the deindustrialization process in Belgium. Since September 2016, Verschueren hold a chair in Contemporary History at ULB.


Europe, at the center of the debate
