Europe and the Global EconomyThe Europe Center Program
Although each nation in Europe retains its distinct cultural, social and political identity, the region as a whole is among the world’s most economically integrated zones. The open movement of goods, services, capital, people, and pollutants that we observe today was not, however, inevitable; instead, it was contested, challenged, and reversed at many points in the past. Taking this observation as a starting point, The Europe Center supports scholarly research that investigates how institutional, societal, and political forces shaped, and continue to shape, economic relations within Europe and between Europe and the world. Additionally, this research area seeks answers to questions about how various dimensions of the international economic environment impact domestic politics in Europe, with the goal to better understand political responses both in Europe and in the world more broadly.
The Center supports active research programs on Europe and the Global Economy by Stanford faculty and students, and facilitates short-term and long-term research visits by scholars seeking to collaborate and conduct research on this topic. For a description of our funding opportunities, please visit the Grant and Visitor Programs page.
The Europe and the Global Economy seminar series is an interdisciplinary forum for distinguished scholars to present cutting-edge research about Europe’s role as a key player in processes of international economic integration. Additional information about this seminar can be found here.
