Chairs of Studies

Here at the Institute we like to also focus on some key aspects of European relations around the world. To this extent, we have created chairs of regiona European studies for important relations around the world. Each of these Studies are headed up by a chair, supported by editors, and there is a selective recruitment for writers of these Chairs. Check out our current Chairs below, and if you are interested in helping us create more, reach out to us on !
