The Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies (CERES) is among the world’s leaders for the academic study of the member countries of the European Union, central and eastern Europe, Russia, the Transcaucasus, and Central Asia.
Drawing upon the expertise of more than ten departments and dozens of faculty members, CERES hosts an undergraduate degree program in European Affairs and a Master of Arts degree program in European and Russian Affairs. Housed at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy, CERES is a hub for scholars and practitioners that stands at the forefront of research, debate, and policymaking.
Every year it organizes regionally focused conferences and seminars and hosts a dozen visiting scholars. CERES supports the exchange of ideas and scholars through its close relations with the institutions of the European Union, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and institutions of higher learning across Europe, Eurasia, and North America.
