Since August 2016, students of this pivotal academic post-graduate course have benefited also from the academic knowledge developed during the three year Jean Monnet Center of Excellence “Centrifugal Europe and the Challenge of Integration" (Contract Number: 574597-EPP-1-2016-1-IT-EPPJMO-CoE) funded by the European Commission through its Erasmus Plus programme.  

Led by Prof. Sergio Fabbrini, students have had the opportunity to explore how the growing centrifugal forces affecting EU policy making are affecting international public affairs, in particular when examining international public policies in various specific fields and areas.
