Welcome to the UCL European Institute
A proud Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence
Part of our activities are funded by the European Union through the Jean Monnet programme. We have been a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence since 2016, a designation that provides funding via the Erasmus+ programme.
Our five current project strands (Rule of law, Left-wing populism, Power vertical, Scotland and the EU, Britain and Europe 2.0.) centre on how intensely held beliefs and new ways of doing politics increasingly challenge the status quo in Europe.
Highlights from our recent work:
European Voices is a new portal to UCL’s rich links to Europe: from research and teaching, partnerships and engagement, to student, staff and alumni ties to the continent.
Sea, Song, Writing
Our short film featuring world-renowned musicians explores music, poetry, and our engagement with both. Watch 'Sea, Song, Writing: On the Palmy Beach'.
UCL Brexit Hub
