Understanding EU-UN Relations
The EUN-NET Network brings together established academics from different disciplines (law, economics, political science and international relations) that have a proven record of research and teaching excellence in the field of EU-UN relations. The rationale of this multidisciplinary partnership is to encourage exchange of academic best-practice and creating a thematic trans-national research group.
The EUN-NET Network’s dual objective comprises the stimulation of academic interest in EU-UN interactions and the forging of a broader common public space for informed analysis and debate on current EU-UN issues. The former will be achieved by a variety of teaching methodologies and the set up of a research network that will outlive the duration of the program. The latter will entail an enhanced cooperation between academic and civil society stakeholders through several public events to disseminate knowledge and enhance the understanding of this complex relationship.
On 15 January 2018, LSE hosted a public event on the framework of the EU-funded Jean Monnet Network on EU-UN Relations. Professor Jan Wouters (KU Leuven) was invited to talk about ‘How Brexit Contributes to the Collapse of Multilateralism’. More info here.
