The Institute for European Global Studies is a research institute of the University of Basel. We regard the development of Europe from a global perspective and thus contribute to answering central questions of our time.
Our Study Programme includes the Bologna-style "Master of Arts in European Global Studies", the post-graduate programme "Master of Advanced Studies in European and Global Governance", as well as the programme "Certificate of Advanced Studies".
In our Research, which focuses on Europe, Asia and Africa, we develop concepts and methods to reveal Europe's global entanglements in society, history, law and economy. Our results are published in books and in the e-journal "Global Europe – Basel Papers on Europe in a Global Perspective".
The Institute is supported by a Community of leading personalities in business, politics and society from Switzerland and Europe. We regularly organise events for our alumni.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
