Welcome to the UCL European Institute, UCL's hub for research, collaboration and information on Europe and the European Union.
The EU is faced with the challenges of fashioning practices and institutions that reconcile the conflicting demands on political representatives from their international partners and their domestic constituents. This has been particularly manifest in the eurozone recently, but it reflects a deeper challenge which also concerns non euro-area members such as the UK.

Journeys and Exchange explores cross-cultural elements of the Dutch Golden Age and the history of the Dutch East India Company. This small exhibition includes three exquisitely decorated and illustrated early printed books from UCL Library Special Collections and an image of a Rembrandt print from UCL Art Museum, alongside beautifully painted tiles and vases in the style of Delftware. The ceramics were created specially for the exhibition by participants in an innovative programme of community workshops, and reflect both cultural exchange in the seventeenth century and the workshop participants’ personal stories of migration. The project was the result of a partnership with the Wallace Collection, whose refurbished galleries of Dutch art re-opened to the public in 2012. This exhibition has been curated by UCL PhD student Stefanie van Gemert, who devised and led the workshops with support from UCL Public Engagement and Volunteering Services Units.
