As a leading research institution and a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in European Studies, the Institut d’Études Européennes
of the Université libre de Bruxelles (IEE-ULB) supported the launch of this global series in view of bringing together multidisciplinary research in global governance and EU studies. The series can draw on a wide and global network of partner universities across the globe’s five continents. Among its numerous resources special mention is to be made of the Erasmus Mundus GEM PhD School on ‘Globalisation, Europe, Multilateralism’ and the GR:EEN European research project on ‘Global Reordering: Evolving European Networks’.
Volumes included in the series share innovative research objectives centred on: Globalisation, the EU’s changing position therein, resulting forms of multilateral cooperation, and the role of transnational networks as well as multipolarity in the contemporary international order. A wide array of possible approaches to these shared themes are welcomed, these include among other: comparative regionalism, public and foreign policy analysis, EU governance and Europeanisation studies, discourse analysis, area studies, and several institutional perspectives, etc.
With a shared aim to contribute to innovations in both European Integration and International studies, the series includes: collaborative volumes, research based monographs and textbooks. Each publications undergoes an international referee process, and enjoys the advice and feedback of an International editorial board.
