  • Highlight specific themes relevant to contemporary Europe and create a space for substantive discussions and debate with CES members and speakers.
  • Bring policy experts and scholars from a variety of disciplinary perspectives to present ongoing research, exchange ideas, and analyze recent developments.
  • Educate and engage students and members of the Harvard community on current issues concerning European history, politics, economy, and societies.
