The European Institute exists to promote academic excellence in the study of Europe at UCL, working to provide a leading forum for intellectual debate and acting as liaison to EU and UK policy-making communities within the University. We offer a diverse programme of public events, provide expert analysis and commentary for media outlets and policymakers, and help coordinate and develop networks of research.
