Contemporary Europe Study Group


Many of the issues confronting Europe today are not confined to any single nation-state but are transnational in scope. While many European countries face questions of security, immigration, and rising nationalism, each nation’s response differs. This interdisciplinary Study Group focuses primarily on these transnational issues in the post-1945 period.

H.E. Jean-Marc Ayrault spoke about the state of affairs in France and Europe in November 2014.
