Welcome to the Institute of Contemporary European Studies (iCES)
The Institute of Contemporary European Studies (iCES) seeks to build on the existing pool of research, expertise and contacts within the European Business School London and its partner schools throughout Europe in order to contribute to the debate on contemporary Europe and contemporary European Studies.
iCES is organised as a network of activities at the centre of which is the iCES Annual Review. These activities are arranged as an annual cycle of events oriented towards final publication in the iCES Occasional Paper series. This cycle of activity includes:
In addition to developing links between the EBS partnership network European Business Schools International ( EBSI ), further collaborative work will be undertaken with the European Government Business Relations Council, The Senior European Experts group, Eurointelligence, the Jean Monnet Association and the Robert Schuman Foundation.
The challenges confronting contemporary Europe are wide-ranging: enlargement, climate change, energy, defence, financial integration, security, migration. The overall purpose of iCES is to engage actively in this debate on the construction of Europe in the 21st century and aim in the process to raise the profile of contemporary Europe and contemporary European studies.
