1st Funding Period

In the first funding period, the Research College studied the role of the EU as the promoter and recipient of ideas, analyzing the mechanisms and effects of internal and external diffusion processes in the three research areas. Each research area extended over a period of two years in order to allow for thorough analysis and theory development.

Field of Study 1

The EU and Regional Institution in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia: During its history of integration, the EU has developed as a major reference point for regionalisms around the globe. The aim of this research area is to explore how and under what conditions European policies and institutions diffuse to other regions of the world, particularly to Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.
