The Jean Monnet Center of Excellence in European Studies at UC Berkeley is a joint effort of the Institute of European Studies (IES) and the Institute of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ISEEES).

Funded by the European Commission and housed at IES, the Center of Excellence is dedicated to the development of research and outreach programs aimed at promoting a deeper understanding of the European Union and transatlantic relations both on the UC Berkeley campus and throughout the West Coast.

The Center's diverse research activities focus on key aspects of the European Union and its role in the world; its member states and the integration process; contemporary European society and culture; and how the EU as a global actor shapes international issues, events, and governance.
