The Greek Centre of European Studies and Research (EKEME in its Greek acronym) was founded in 1980 by a group of academics, legal practitioners, economists and social scientists. EKEME was founded and operates as a non-profit institution, independent of any political or state affiliation. It does not benefit of any regular subsidy, but is been financed by its members and through participation to programs and initiatives sponsored by national and EU sources. EKEME has worked to shed light on several aspects of Greece’s membership to the EC/EU and to the integration process, with facts, with studies, research programs and through participation to transnational research ventures. EKEME is the Greek member of the Trans-European Policy Studies Association (TEPSA). EKEME brings together the research experience and analytical capacity of a wide range of disciplines, especially economics, law, political science, sociology, as well as European and international relations. It has participated and is presently engaged in multi-disciplinary research programmes that allow for policy proposals in fields of current interest for Greece’s membership to the EU and European integration at large.

In May 2011, EKEME has co-organised with TEPSA and ECEFIL a conference on the topic “After the Crisis: Adjustment in Greece and the Eurozone” in Brussels at the EP building with the support of its many Greek MEPs.

The results of EKEME’s work are widely disseminated through its up-to-date mailing list or via its website.
