Centre for European Studies

University of Twente

The Centre for European Studies (CES) is a centre of expertise based at the University of Twente in The Netherlands. Its purpose is to pool European studies and European research at the university and to serve as a centre for coordination in that field. In that capacity, CES functions as a contact point for students, lecturers, and researchers who are involved or interested in European studies and European public administration. At the same time, it is an information point for the public sector, journalists, or companies in need of expertise in the area of European governance. CES has established contacts with numerous other national and international institutes. Researchers connected to the Centre analyse issues of European integration and policy from different academic perspectives, including economics, law, sociology and political science. Key areas of interest include European economic governance, budgetary and fiscal policies, the Lisbon agenda, EU external relations law and foreign and security policy, the EU in the world, multilevel regulation, EU institutional development, European democracy and European social integration.

CES's Directors are Prof. Nico Groenendijk and Prof. Ramses A. Wessel.
