The Centre for Europe is an integral part of the prestigious and historical University of Warsaw. It is one of the oldest and of the most widely recognised facilities in Poland (as well as in Eastern and Central Europe) representing an interdisciplinary approach to broadly understood European Studies. Thus, our area of research and didactic work includes political studies, legal and socio-economic matters, and cultural issues in internal, regional, external and global dimensions. Our activities are also focused on publishing periodicals, textbooks and didactic materials. The studies conducted in the Centre offer training programmes taking into account new challenges and problems faced by the EU at the beginning of the 21st century. At the same time, they are adjusted to the needs of the European job market and they improve the students’ practical skills. Another important aspect of the Centre’s operation are the actions in the field of international cooperation between individual researchers and institutes. Therefore, the Centre organises a cycle of international seminars and conferences. It also participates in several international projects.
