The Centre for EU-Asia Connectivity (CEAC) promotes joint research activities in the research field of EU Studies and EU-Asia relations, with particular attention to the role of connectivity. Within our network, we pool expertise from Europe, Asia, and beyond. The Centre provides an interdisciplinary, multicultural, and cross-generational platform for junior and senior researchers alike.
Research activities contribute to a differentiated and more strategic understanding of the EU´s role in a globalised world, as well as the factors that strengthen and inhibit it. Our research adds to existing academic literature and also provides policy-relevant recommendations.
The Centre for EU-Asia Connectivity (CEAC) is the first Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB). We are proud of our ability to attract external funding. CEAC´s researchers are engaged in a number of different research projects and activities. Several projects are initiated jointly by researchers with common research interests. In the years ahead, the Centre of Excellence will create channels and platforms of exchange and development on a high-quality level.
