Every two years, IES applies for institutional funding from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) to support several activities for its Center for German and European Studies including faculty research.

Research projects involve collaborators from all nine campuses of the University of California and usually continue for two to three years, on such topics as Political Economy of European Integration, Supranational Governance in the EU, Globalization and Governance in the European Union, European Security, and the Political Economy of Ethnic Conflict.

For more information and to apply, please contact IES Associate Director Dr. Akasemi Newsome:
