SSHOP
In May 2018, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Institute for European Global Studies have launched the "Social Sciences and Humanities Online Platform" (SSHOP-EG). The new website for the University of Basel's focal area "European and Global Studies" provides information about news and events with a specifically European or global perspective.


"SSHOP-EG" aims to facilitate communication about the wide range of activities within the University of Basel's focal area "European and Global Studies." The platform contains news, events, and further information with a specifically European or global perspective. The site is maintained by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in cooperation with the Institute for European Global Studies.

About the Focal Area "European and Global Studies"

The focal area "European and Global Studies" expands the University of Basel's long tradition of expertise in the field of historical and social scientific research, in order to critically approach, further explore, and discuss current issues of our society under consideration of their entanglements within Europe and the world. While research on Eastern Europe and Africa is well-established in Basel, an increasing amount of interest is devoted to Islamic cultures and the Middle East, as well as China and South East Asia.
