The Center for European Studies (CES) is a multidisciplinary institute committed to the examination of European society, culture, politics, diplomacy, and security. The Center's goal is to develop Stanford's contribution to the study of Europe's history and contemporary position as a global power by bringing together students and scholars from the humanities and the social sciences, policy makers, diplomats, and journalists. The Center sponsors visiting professors, intellectuals, and personalities from Europe. Besides research, an important side-product of these exchanges is the development of Stanford undergraduate and graduate courses on themes related to European history, culture, and current events.
