The Institut d’Etudes Européennes (IEE-ULB) was born just a few years after the European Union itself at the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB). Conceived as a centre of education and research, with a commitment to public debate, the IEE-ULB quickly opened itself up to the world and has an ongoing cooperation with more than 100 academic partners. We are a proudly multicultural Jean Monnet Center of Excellence, with faculty from a dozen European countries and students from 35 nationalities.
As a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence, the IEE-ULB is a recognized hub of expertise in European affairs and has a proven track record in doctoral training. Its 36 associate academic lectures and over 42 affiliated researchers are here to prove it.
