What precisely is the Greek government’s mandate?

Kira Gartzou, research assistant in European Studies, analyses the differences in views expressed by Syriza towards Europe, and in particular Germany, during its winning electoral campaign, and the views now portrayed in Syriza’s party newspaper since coming to power in January 2015. What implications may this have for the future of Greek negotiations with creditor institutions, and what is actually the mandate of the Greek government?

Extremism disenchanted: what role can education play?

Young people in the UK today who are attracted to extremism are typically well educated. Given the weaknesses of this ideology in terms of its use of history, internal coherence of arguments and moral standards, its success with many educated young people requires explanation. The explanation, according to Dr. Farid, is multifaceted but education has a big role to play in curbing the trend.

European Institute awarded a European Commission Jean Monnet grant

6 July 2012

The European Institute has been awarded a new year-long grant from the Jean Monnet Programme, Information and Research Activities. Part of the EU's Lifelong Learning Programme, this action is specifically directed at Higher Education Institutions working to promote discussion, reflection and knowledge about the process of European integration.

Our ambitious programme for next year will include the continuation of established events series - such as the Belgian Ambassador's Salon Series; our EU Public Policy Series; the annual Sakharov Debate on Human Rights in Europe held with the European Parliament Office in the UK; or an events cycle to be co-organised with UCLU's European Society. We are also breaking new ground, developing European-specific links under UCL's new Collaborative with US-university Yale, among other exciting prospects.
