The Institut d’études européennes de l’ULB has been invited to join the prestigious Groupe d’études géopolitiques (GEG), an independent centre of research, as well as a publisher and a think tank, located at the École normale supérieure, in Paris, with an office in Brussels hosted, since this February 2022 at the IEE-ULB. The Groupe d’études géopolitiques publishes the journal Le Grand Continent.
The Institut d’études européennes joins the College of Europe, the European Institute at Columbia University, the Europe Center at the University of Cambridge and the School of Transnational Governance at the European University Institute as partner of GEG.
Starting in February, the Brussels edition of the GEG Weekly Seminar, a series of high-level round tables, will be held at the Institut d’études européennes of the ULB when held in a hybrid format. Some sessions will be online only.
« We are thrilled to join our colleagues from the College of Europe, Columbia University, the University of Cambridge and the European University Institute as partners of the GEG”, said the Institute’s President, Professor Ramona Coman. “In line with our mission of promoting public debate about European issues, we welcome the weekly GEG seminars at the IEE and hope they serve as a bridge between our community and all those interested in EU affairs”.
The proposal for collaboration was unanimously approved by the IEE Academic Council, which welcomes this opportunity.
