Jean Monnet

The Jean Monnet Actions aim at promoting excellence in teaching and research in the field of European Union studies worldwide. These Actions also aim at fostering dialogue between the academic world and policymakers, in particular with the aim of enhancing governance of EU policies.

European Union studies comprise the study of Europe in its entirety with particular emphasis on the European integration process in both its internal and external aspects. The discipline also covers the role of the EU in a globalised world and in promoting an active European citizenship and dialogue between people and cultures.

The core subject areas are the following:

  • EU and Comparative Regionalism Studies;
  • EU Communication and Information Studies;
  • EU Economic Studies;
  • EU Historical Studies;
  • EU Intercultural Dialogue Studies;
  • EU Interdisciplinary Studies;
  • EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies;
  • EU Legal Studies;
  • EU Political and Administrative Studies.

However, different subject areas (such as sociology, philosophy, religion, geography, literature, art, sciences, environmental studies, global studies, etc.) may also be associated with this field of study when they include an element of teaching, research or reflection on the EU, and contribute, in general, to the Europeanisation of curricula.

Jean Monnet projects can support:

  • Jean Monnet Modules
  • Jean Monnet Chairs
  • Jean Monnet Centres of Excellence
  • Jean Monnet support to institutions and associations
  • Jean Monnet Networks (policy debate with the academic world)
  • Jean Monnet Projects (policy debate with the academic world)

Jean Monnet activities can include organisation of courses, research, conferences and publication in the field of European studies.

Institutions from Serbia can participate in all types of Jean Monnet projects, similar to institutions from all over the world.
