Welcome to the UCL European Institute, UCL's hub for research, collaboration and information on Europe and the European Union.
In the eurozone, the EU needs greater legitimacy at the national level not only to secure space for domestic politics but also to secure respect for social and economic commitments over time.

It's groundhog day in Britain, where the European Union is concerned. The context changes, but the basic issues do not.

The recent Scottish referendum set a precedent in contemporary Europe by seeking to deliver, in agreement between Westminster and Holyrood, a binding decision on Scotland's future. The 'participatory process' that took place in Catalonia on 9 November could not be more different. Why is this
so, what are its consequences, and where might we be heading?

BL Anglo-German Blog: Call for UCL guest bloggers
6 February 2014
Discover the British Library's extensive collections from continental Europe and contribute your news and views on European culture and affairs as a guest contributor.
The British Library has always collected material from both Western and Eastern Europe and in some cases their historic collections are second only to those in their countries of origin. Today’s European Studies department collects and curates material from all over the continent – from Greece to Finland and from France to Georgia, and everywhere in between. You can find more details of our collections and how to contact individual sections within the department on our web pages.
Their European Studies Blog is written by curators and cataloguers, with occasional pieces by guest contributors, organised by Susan Reed, Head of Germanic Collections at the British Library. This year the blog will include a particular strand on Anglo-German matters.
Susan Reed would welcome guest posts from UCL academics; please contact her directly or ask us for more details. The main criterion is to take an item or collection in the BL as a starting point to discuss a relevant theme.
