The Center for West European Studies (CWES) was founded in 1994. Our mission is to enhance the quality of teaching and research on West European politics, society, and culture through outreach to universities, community colleges, business, the general public, and the K-12 community. The Center’s programs are uniquely interdisciplinary, fostering collaboration between Europeanists from twenty different departments and professional schools on campus. The Center for West European Studies is housed in the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, which features one of the largest collections of area studies centers in the United States.
The Center for West European Studies is a proud member of the Council for European Studies
As a member of CES, the Center is able to provide outstanding resources to support the research of European Studies across a wide range of disciplines. For more information on our membership, the CES, and how you can become a part of the program, click here: http://councilforeuropeanstudies.org/.
