Welcome to the UCL European Institute, UCL's hub for research, collaboration and information on Europe and the European Union.
Juncker’s nomination was not a sudden, not an unexpected and not even a distinct event. Neither does it spell
an end to the European Council’s dominance in constitutional politics or
make EU reform less likely.

Despite “shocks” & “earthquakes” that took place at the national

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.
