Welcome to the Interdisciplinary Centre for European Studies (ICES)

ICES is the central space for interdisciplinary research on Europe at Europa-Universität Flensburg. European integration is a complex process that continuously shapes society, politics and culture. The goal of ICES is to identify and research these processes from the perspectives of the social sciences and the humanities.

As the central point of contact for questions concerning European research for science, politics and civil society, ICES is devoted to supporting three areas: 1. research funding, 2. networking and 3. the promotion of young and early-stage researchers.

At ICES, EUF researchers are networked across disciplines, institutes and universities. This enables us to work at an interdisciplinary level and thus to develop new explanatory approaches and innovative proposals.

Our  research axes are:

  • Welfare and Work
  • Culture and Identity
  • Evidence and Communication
  • Justice and Democracy
