About

 

OUR MISSION

The Edinburgh Europa Research Group is the University of Edinburgh’s postgraduate forum for European affairs. We provide a space for researchers, in particular PhD students and Early Career Researchers, to present their work in European studies, to receive feedback and to exchange ideas in a friendly and constructive environment. We organise our Seminar Series of research presentations, supplemented by occasional panel discussions and conferences.

Europa RG is run by a team of doctoral researchers from Edinburgh Law School and the School of Social and Political Science. The Group was founded in 2013 and forms part of the Edinburgh Europa Institute. All of the Group’s events are open to the entire university community and to guest academics and practitioners.
