Dear UACES Colleagues, I hope you have been spending some time away from your computer screens and recharging the batteries over the summer months. It has again been a challenging year for the academic community faced with the ongoing uncertainties posed by the pandemic. Let us hope that things are a little more straightforward in […]

A scholarship report by Giulia Casartelli. Thanks to the UACES scholarship, I have been able to conduct fieldwork in Istanbul, in April and May 2021, in the context of my PhD project in European and International Studies at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. The research is conducted in a Political Science department, […]
Even amongst those well-versed in the history of European integration, the name of Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi (RCK for short here and in the book) is relatively unknown. This is particularly true in the anglosphere where until now there was no biography in English of this remarkable 20th century figure. Martyn Bond would have already done a considerable service by producing such a biography but in fact, the book offers much more and can be read with equal profit by specialists as well as the general reader.
We regret to announce the death of Sir Leslie Fielding on 4 March 2021, who was Honorary President of UACES between 1990-96. Leslie was a larger than life figure – extrovert, engaging and energetic. There were at least three sides to his career – the public official, the academic, and involvement in the Church of England.
Since I wrote my last Chair’s column, we have taken the decision to host the 51st UACES Annual Conference virtually due to the ongoing situation with the COVID pandemic. We held our first virtual conference last September and we look forward to seeing friends and colleagues again from the UACES community, albeit, sadly, again in a virtual environment. The call for papers remains open until the 1st of April so do consider submitting a paper or a panel if you have not already done so. This year, we are hoping, restrictions permitting, that we will be able to host a small number of local bubble events to give members the chance to meet up in person in various locations - watch this space. Here’s hoping that the 2022 Annual Conference will take place in Lille as scheduled.
We are delighted to welcome four new Honorary Patrons to UACES. Our Honorary Patrons support the Association by helping us promote the discipline of European Studies and Higher Education in general, attending UACES events and providing expertise and advice to the trustees when required.
For many years, UACES has attended the POLITICO’s EU Studies & Career Fair – a fair that brings together universities, students and professionals in the field of European Studies. We were lucky enough to attend several fairs along some of UACES group members and other universities and institutions. The University of Bath, the University […]
