Jean Monnet EU Centre of Excellence

Dr. Brunet-Jailly speaks about the Jean Monnet Centre for Excellence grant.

The Jean Monnet European Union Centre of Excellence (JM EUCE) grant is led by Emmanuel Brunet-Jailly with Charlotte Schallie, supported by Oliver Schmidtke and Amy Verdun.

The JM EUCE builds on the long tradition of EU activities in research, outreach and experiential opportunities at UVic which has involved faculty from diverse departments to promote, advance and build excellence in the studies of European Integration at UVic and increase the visibility of the EU in British Columbia, Canada. The Centre will serve as the administrative and coordinating hub for the EU-funded activities on campus. It is located in the Centre for Global Studies. 

Direct outputs include EUS 200, student funding for the EU Study Tour and Graduate Research Grants, participation in public forums (including The City Talks series downtown) and other research presentation opportunities.

Our final Public Forum will be combined with a Graduate Student Workshop on Canada's Border Policies in Comparative Perspective.
