The TEPSA Network gains an esteemed new
Associate Member from Poland
BRUSSELS, 11/01/2021: On the occasion of TEPSA’s Portuguese Pre-Presidency Conference, the TEPSA General Assembly voted unanimously to admit the Institute of European Studies (IES) of the Jagiellonian University in Kraków to Associate Member status in the TEPSA Network.
The Jagiellonian University is the oldest university in Poland, where the Institute of European Studies forms part of its leading Faculty of International and Political Studies. IES is known for its interdisciplinary approach, combining the perspectives of anthropology, economy, cultural studies, political science and international relations, history, law and sociology on Europe. IES experts will contribute to TEPSA’s leading projects and make their voices heard across Europe. By integrating the Institute of European Studies into the TEPSA Network, the European conversation has been made more inclusive, more diverse, and therefore more valuable.
Magdalena Góra, who will serve as the Institute’s official TEPSA Delegate, commented: “The Institute of European Studies is a leading EU studies hub in Poland and our membership in TEPSA will contribute to producing high quality interdisciplinary research combining the perspectives of anthropology, economy, cultural studies, political science and international relations, history, law and sociology on Europe as IES is known for its interdisciplinary approach. Additionally, we hope that participation in TEPSA will help us foster scientific and educational cooperation with other institutions in Europe. As we are active in promoting knowledge on European policies and politics to our local community in Poland and in Kraków – our participation in TEPSA will help increasing awareness on EU and its affairs and enrich our policy recommendations. Our expertise in education and broad educational offer assures that we will engage young people in scientific cooperation and promoting research results within TEPSA network”.
