Welcome to the UCL European Institute, UCL's hub for research, collaboration and information on Europe and the European Union. We are part of the Institute of Advanced Studies.
What, if anything, can the experience of (research on) Eastern Europe say to us as we head towards Brexit? Lessons may lie above all in getting to grips with the tempo and nature of political change, its (un)predictability and likely channels.

On Thursday night, for the third time since January 2015, President François Hollande was faced with a mass murder on French soil. An ashen-faced Hollande, almost looking like a broken man, appeared on television on Friday at 4am and declared: “This is undoubtedly a terrorist attack; the whole of France is under the threat of an Islamic terrorist attack”.

Opportunity! Masterclass with Prof Christian Joerges
30 April 2013
22 May 2013. UCL Graduate School & DAAD Masterclass on European Law, Modern History and Public Policy.
SIGN UP FOR THE EVENT.
Graduate School Masterclasses are a programme of talks and workshops designed specifically for early-career researchers to hear from, interact with and be inspired by experienced academic researchers. This upcoming workshop is organised in collaboration with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the German national agency for the support of international academic cooperation.
09:45 – Tea & Coffee
The speakers have been invited to talk about their current research and the business of research in general, their views on how ideas are generated and research projects realised. The sessions also seek to present speakers' views and experiences of their time in academia, their ways of working and their interesting careers. Open to a restricted number of participants, sessions are conceived as being interactive, with a presentation from the speaker and plenty of time for the audience to ask questions. Each speaker will give their unique perspective on these issues, and although the talks will focus on a particular discipline, the chance to listen to and talk to a senior member of the global research community should appeal more widely to researchers considering a future in international research.
