Archiving the European Institute Website

As you may already know, the European Institute has ceased operations. However, in the next few months, the rich work of the European Institute, captured on their website (www.europeaninstitute.org), will be archived and available to all here. Until then, the University will continue to maintain the existing URL and website.

The European Institute has served as the leading public policy organization in Washington devoted solely to Transatlantic Relations since its founding in 1989. Further, the European Institute’s policy journal, European Affairs, has been invaluable in strengthening the direct exchanges facilitated through its many meetings by drawing on a wide network of prominent experts to build a rich and comprehensive body of work on contemporary issues at the core of European-American relations.
