The Colorado European Union Center of Excellence


CEUCE fosters institutional and people-to-people links between the Mountain West region of the United States and the European Union. With its interdisciplinary focus, CEUCE promotes research excellence, enhances undergraduate and graduate education, engages in outreach to other international organizations, builds new public-private relationships, and brings an EU perspective to the Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver.

CEUCE is proud to be the recipient of three prestigious grants: two Jean Monnet Center of Excellence grants from the EU Commission and one grant from the EU Delegation (Diplomatic Mission) to the United States in Washington DC. These grants allow us to support research, teaching, outreach and public diplomacy related to the EU in the Mountain West region. CEUCE is run by two Academic Directors, who are also DU Professors, an Executive Director, an Administrative Director and student interns.


Rhodes and Caporaso

CEUCE is pleased to announce that a new volume edited by Martin Rhodes and James Caporaso is now available from the Oxford University Press.  The Political and Economic Dynamics of the Eurozone Crisis is the first book to provide a full and dispassionate account of the politics and economics of the Eurozone crisis, focusing on the interlinked origins and impacts of the Euro-Zone crisis and the policy responses to it.
