Impact: Teaching, Research, Connecting Scholars

Graduate and post-graduate students, staff members, international visiting scholars and guest professors constitute a vibrant scientific community at the Institute for European Global Studies: we aim to connect different traditions of research from various academic fields in order to promote an intensive exchange of topics, methodologies, theories and research approaches. The common interest of the Institute’s scholars focuses on the tensions and interferences between established orders of thinking based on a Eurocentric approach (e.g. the nation state, international law) and the dynamics of globalization and its consequences on the global, national and local level.

With staff members from three different faculties of the University of Basel, representing four academic disciplines, the Europainstitut / Institute for European Global Studies offers a timely and innovative academic education with an interdisciplinary focus and a commitment to collaborative forms of research and learning.
