Our faculty and affiliates hail from over a dozen different departments across Stanford, each providing a distinct perspective to a broad and more complex understanding of Europe. We engage in both thematic and regionally focused research, and provide a forum for experts to engage in public policy debates regarding Europe and its evolving position on the international stage.
Our thematic research focuses on public policy issues of growing concern to Europe and its evolving position in the world.
The Center's regional research is interdisciplinary and focuses on history, culture, politics and society.
Our Center delivers programming that supports graduate student research focused on Europe. In partnership with the Freeman Spogli Institute and the University of Vienna, we also host the annual Distinguished Visiting Austrian Chair Professor, a program endowed in 1976 by the Austrian government.
