Jean Monnet Centre of ExcellenceCENTER FOR EUROPEAN STUDIES

Welcome to METU Center for European Studies Homepage

The Center for European Studies (CES) is founded in 1997 at the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences (FEAS) in order to promote the development of an interdisciplinary environment conducive for studying and researching the processes of European integration in a comparative manner. Since its inauguration, the Center has actively engaged in teaching and research on policy and politics in Europe in general and the process of social and political transformation in Turkey on the way to EU membership in particular. In 2005, the CES has been awarded a substantial grant by the European Commission to advance its institutional and research capacity in European Studies to become a leading Center of Excellence in the region. As part of this goal, the Center has been concentrating its efforts on forming institutional networks with various research centers and universities in Europe in order to undertake joint research projects. The Center acts as a focal point between policy-makers, scholars and practitioners at the national and international levels on the future of Turkey - EU relationship.



    This week's Jean Monnet talk will be given by H.E. Hansjoerg Haber, the EU Ambassador to Turkey.

    The presentation is titled 'EU-Turkey relations in the light of the Progress Report' and  
    it will be the first meeting in Turkey discussing the 2015 Progress Report which will be released tomorrow.
