Global Europe & International Cooperation (GEIC)
This research group explores the historical processes & contemporary challenges of international ordering and domination, global governance in Europe and Euro-centric constellations, as well as Europe’s cooperation and contestation with the broader international community in the 20th and 21st century.
A core interest of this research group is to link three intellectual strands: (1) histories and contemporary processes of imperialism and decolonization, and postcolonial perspectives; (2) Global, transnational, and entangled outlooks on European cooperation, contestation, and conflagration in the 20th and 21st century; (3) (interdisciplinary) analyses of international orders, international and regional organizations and global governance across policy fields, geographies, and watershed moments.
The group’s main purpose is to encourage exchanges between scholars who promote renewed research agendas, interdisciplinary approaches, and innovative tools to study these various topics. Composed of core members from the University of Copenhagen, Malmö University and Lund University, affiliated members from universities all over the world, as well as over a range of partner institutions, it also functions as a hub for the development of research projects aimed for Danish, Swedish and Scandinavian or European research funds, as well as funding agencies which promote transnational collaboration.
The group’s main activities include:
- Encouraging synergies between the different research projects carried out at CEMES on the above topics.
- Promoting the use of innovative tools and methodologies within our fields.
- Hosting international conferences which rethink our themes through interdisciplinary debates
- Developing partnerships with relevant archive centers.
- Inviting prominent scholars from our connected fields to discuss their research.
- Making research available to the broader public through digital dissemination.
- Hosting a reading group in which CEMES-scholars can discuss new research.
- Developing research-based teaching and pedagogical approaches to our field.
- Engaging students in the research activities and public dissemination of the group.
- Involving stakeholders (policymakers, business actors, activists, artists etc.) in the development and dissemination of path-breaking research within our fields.
- Attracting young researchers to develop innovative research projects to be hosted by CEMES and the research group, such as in the framework of Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowships and Gerda Henkel Fellowships.
- Inviting visiting scholars to CEMES, hosted at MAU, LU or UCHP.
- Facilitating student internships with relevant European and Global partners.
