Chulalongkorn University is Thailand’s first institution of higher learning, founded in 1917. The Centre for European Studies (CES) at Chulalongkorn University was established in October 1997, after the successful conclusion of its European Studies Programme (CUESP), which had been supported by the European Commission from 1993 to 1999. The Centre is aiming at the enhancement of knowledge in the field of European studies in Asia. For this purpose it has been hosting various kinds of academic activities such as international conferences, talk fora and special lectures on European topics. Hosting a European Documentation Center (EDC) the CES has published a series of books, journals and discussion papers on EU related issues. Their academic excellence and their experience in setting up and running an EU studies programme in an Asian environment make the CES an important facilitator and an ideal partner for this project.
