European construction is a long-term, ambivalent phenomenon, which involves cooperation and competition, trust and mistrust. Additionally, the European geography features widely varying historical, cultural, sociological and political dimensions. As a result, Europe is a constantly changing variable-geometry space.
Our research center European Dynamics (Dynamiques européennes) investigates this complexity by drawing on various approaches from the social sciences and humanities. Our scholars analyze the ties forged by our continent to the outside world, from the early twentieth century to the present.
