Research Seminars

The research seminar series is part of the “Un-Muting Europe” (EUNMUTE) ERASMUS+ Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence’s which is an interdisciplinary platform centred on law, political science, political theory and sociology. It aims to explore the capacity of the European Union to give voice and/or make heard those who are usually insufficiently heard or voiceless. Over the next three years (2022-2025), seminars will be alternately devoted to five of the most important challenges of our times:

  • rule of law;
  • inclusiveness;
  • climate and natural resources;
  • digital transformations;
  • democracy.
