A proud Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence

Jean Monnet and Erasmus Plus logos

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 lawLeft-wing populismPower verticalScotland and the EUBritain and Europe 2.0.)  centre on how intensely held beliefs and new ways of doing politics increasingly challenge the status quo in Europe.

UCL Europe Blog

cropped-final_web_bw.jpgThe UCL Europe Blog features European-focused academic analysis and commentary from UCL academics and external contributors across disciplines. The wide range of blogs covers issues ranging from EU politics and climate change to philosophy, public health, and Brexit. This project is an expansion of the former UCL Brexit Blog.

This blog is curated and managed by the team at the UCL European Institute, and is co-funded by the Erasmus+ fund programme and is made possible by a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence grant.
