Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence for the Study of a Transnational Europe
An interdisciplinary centre for the study of a transnational Europe
What we offer
Centre of Excellence for the Study of a Transnational Europe
The Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence for the Study of a Transnational Europe (CESTE) is funded by the EU to study the political, societal and cultural processes and practices of a transnational Europe, and to extend research and teaching in this field into the future. CESTE forms an integral part of the Centre for European and International Studies Research (CEISR). Many of its EU-funded activities have grown out of CEISR’s Transnational Europe cluster and develop its focus and agenda further.
Funding continuation for CESTE
The CESTE project has been awarded €100,000 from the Erasmus+ programme to continue the highly successful work undertaken since our establishment in 2013.
EU In Practice is a free online course in the policy and law of the European Union: how it is applied at European, national and global level and how it impacts in relations between states, on business and people. Covering fundamental rules of EU law and specific applications, it offers the chance to develop a solid understanding of the impact of European Union law and policy on the member-states, on other states, on EU and non-EU citizens, European and global businesses.
Video: Teaching Young People European Studies
Watch our video, funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus & Jean Monnet Projects, raising awareness of the discipline of European Studies with young people.
CESTE is currently engaged in projects in three thematic streams, covering expertise in policy making in the EU, the transnational dimensions of the Union’s external relations, and the negotiation of narratives and memory in Europe.
