Centre for European Politics

The Centre for European Politics (CEP) studies the processes, institutions and actors of European politics with a special emphasis on security issues and European Integration. We understand European politics as a complex and differentiated field in which interests of transnational institutions, corporations, states, regions and a plethora of non-state actors meet and clash with each other. We study these interactions from an interdisciplinary point of view that combines traditional approaches of European studies, security studies, political science and international relations while incorporating broader historical, social and cultural contexts.
