Presentation of the University

The Institute for European Studies (IES) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) is an academic Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence and a policy think tank that focuses on the European Union in an international setting. The Institute advances academic education and research in various disciplines, and provides services to policy-makers, scholars, stakeholders and the general public.

The IES specifically explores EU institutions, policies and law within the context of globalization and global governance, including a focus on the EU in international affairs and institutions. The disciplines applied at the IES include law, social/political sciences, economics and communication sciences, and the Institute’s activities focus on the various ways in which institutions, law and politics intersect with each other in the EU, its member states and at the international level.

Based on its research, the IES constitutes the focal point for teaching European Studies at the VUB. It coordinates relevant study programmes, including the renowned Master in International and European Law (LLM) and the Master in European Integration and Development. The IES also co-organises an annual Summer School on European Policy-Making. A training programme including a diverse portfolio of general and focused training sessions as well as e-learning modules (www.emodules.be) and a postgraduate programme on European Policy-Making completes the educational portfolio of the IES.

"Being engaged with international students is the best part of an academic’s job in my view. The student groups are exceptional and a privilege to work with due to their versatility and high quality - many remain friends and colleagues later." Prof. Dr. Harri Kalimo, Programme Director
