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.

The Reception of Herodotus in Antiquity & Beyond
This project will provide the first extended and detailed account of the reception of Herodotus, the first European historian, with a particular emphasis on the geographical space of Europe (Greece, Byzantium, Rome, Italy, France, Germany, Poland and Great Britain). The ancient Greek historian Herodotus has been both controversial and influential through time, called, for instance, 'Father of History' (Cicero, 1st century BC), 'Father of Lies' (Juan Luis Vives, 16th century), and author of ‘world literature’s first great work of reportage’ (Kapuściński, 21st century).
