What is the Global Europe Centre?
The Global Europe Centre (GEC) is a new research centre focusing on Europe, its member states, and its place in a changing world.
The Centre brings together leading international academics from politics and international relations, economics, law, business, and European culture in order to explore the contemporary policy challenges to Europe and its nation states.
At GEC our research is policy-relevant and interdisciplinary. Our team has a strong track record of engagement with policy makers and informing decision making in London and in Brussels. Research is also widely disseminated through publications, knowledge transfer workshops, conferences and events.
The Centre has a strong commitment to the creation of the next generation of ideas innovators and policy makers. We run high level consultancy and professional development programmes as well as learning, teaching and knowledge exchange activities and our Global Europe Student Forum.
The GEC is based within the School of Politics and International Relations (SPIR) and at the Brussels School of International Studies (BSIS), University of Kent.
