Welcome to the website of the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence for EU Studies at Keio University, funded by the European Union.

The Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence is a research centre authorized by the European Union (EU), which involves academic activities in two or more of the target disciplines, proposes activities which exploit multi-disciplinary resources in the targeted disciplines and demonstrate openness to civil society.

We will focus on Implications of European Integration for the State and Sovereignty in a Transnational World as a research topic by a multidisciplinary approach. We will try to discovering the ways to strike an optimal balance between sovereignty of the state and transnationalism.

We also try to make this centre the very centre of EU studies in Japan by enhancing the ability to conduct research and analysis on EU affairs in the transnational and globalised world.
