European Studies in a Relational Universe (RELATE)

A UACES Research Network (2022-2025)


The goal of the UACES research network “European Studies in a Relational Universe” (RELATE) is to bring social relational approaches – particularly practice theory, network theory and pragmatism - into the mainstream of European and EU studies, to foster a supportive community of like-minded senior, mid- and early career scholars and to establish a methodologically rigorous research agenda for the application of these approaches to the study of contemporary issues in European politics.

From 2020-2023, UACES Research Networks were supported by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. 

The network, which will run from April 2022 to June 2025, will offer its members and anyone else interested in joining opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration, methodological training and much more! Anyone interested in participating is welcome to email Marianna Lovato at
