Restart of the Europe in the World Research Seminar Series

The Europe in the World: International Relations, International Security, World Politics (EITW) Research Seminar Series is a multi-disciplinary colloquium convened by Prof. Ulrich Krotz (Department of Political and Social Sciences/ Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies), Dr. Robin Markwica (Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies) and Prof. Corinna Unger (Department of History and Civilization).

The seminar discusses the latest research on Europe and its relations with other regions of the world. We bring together junior and established scholars specializing in various areas of international relations and global history, including – but not limited to – security studies, international political economy, diplomatic and colonial history, international law and international development. We combine theoretical insights from a diverse range of disciplines with rigorous and politically relevant empirical analysis.

In the academic year 2019/20, we will hold a total of twelve to fourteen sessions. In each session, a scholar will present their research for 30-45 minutes, and the members of the audience will then have 45-60 minutes to ask questions and to provide feedback.

Anyone interested in the seminar is welcome to attend!
