CES (Council for European Studies)
In spring 2013, Graduate School in Social and Political Sciences has been approved to join the CES Academic Consortium.
The Consortium is an international association of research, educational, and policy institutions committed to supporting and strengthening the study of Europe and European affairs. Established in 1970, the Consortium was originally founded as a limited association of European Studies programs at eight major U.S. universities (UC Berkeley, Columbia University, Harvard University, Princeton University, MIT, University of Michigan, University of Wisconsin, and Yale University).

Over forty years ago, those institutions recognized the immense global importance of European history, culture, and politics, and formally committed themselves to working together to facilitate both knowledge-sharing and new research in this vital area. Since that time, the CES Academic Consortium has grown enormously. It now includes over 100 member institutions around the world, many of which are the leading universities or research centers in their country or region. By joining the Consortium they have all made a highly visible statement of support for the study of Europe at a time when the need for such work is greater than ever.

As a member of the Consortium, GSSPS is now part of an elite international coalition of universities, centers, and other organizations dedicated to furthering the study of Europe around the world. CES membership lists numerous benefits, including eligibility in all CES grant and prize competitions as well as immediate online access to all CES publications, among which are the journal Perspectives on Europe and the indispensable CES Resource Guides series. Additionally, GSSPS students, faculty, and affiliated researchers can now benefit from connections with scholars at some of the world's most prestigious universities.
