About us

The mission of the Council for European Studies (CES) is to produce, support, and recognize outstanding, multi-disciplinary research on Europe through a wide range of programs and initiatives. These include fellowships, grants, publications, awards, conferences and meetings, public lectures and symposia, as well as direct research and artistic collaboration. CES is particularly committed to supporting research that can play a critical role in understanding and applying the lessons of European history and integration to contemporary problems, including those in the areas of global security, sustainability, environmental stewardship, and democracy.

Every year, CES awards dozens of fellowships, grants and prizes; publishes fascinating research guides and journal issues; hosts its renowned international conference; sponsors cutting-edge research; and enters into important partnerships. A full record of our most newsworthy events and initiatives is provided in our press releases.
