Introduction

Europe needs change. Working with Europe implies change. But how to get a grip on European developments?

For example: which consequences does ‘Brexit’ have for your organisation? How to organise a European lobby, and influence European Union decision making? And which historical and political developments can explain how Europe works today? These questions fall within the realm of the research group Changing role of Europe at The Hague University of Applied Sciences.

 

 

About the research group

The research group Changing role of Europe (est. January 2018) focuses on current and topical questions related to European cooperation at the global, regional, national and organisational level. It functions in a wide (inter-)national professional network with governments, think tanks and profit and not for profit organisations.


Lecturers, students and staff of the The Hague University of Applied Sciences are invited to develop and to share European knowledge. The lectorate involves individual and common research development, a reading circle and regular events.
