Politics and Culture in Europe

Introducing PCE Research

Since its inception in 2003, Politics and Culture in Europe (PCE) posits itself as an interdisciplinary research programme. The programme mainly brings together political scientists and historians but is also open to researchers from other disciplines such as philosophy. The topic that frames PCE research is:

'Europe in a world of change’


As such PCE research drives on three main “pillars”:

  • Europe and the process of European integration is key in framing PCE research, but
  • PCE researchers take the global context into account
  • Change and its explanatory factors is a key ‘driver’ for PCE research.
