CefES International Workshop


Europe generated many benefits to many people but also great discontent within its borders. This conflict of interests might put at stake the main goal of the European project, which was essentially to improve quality of life for all Europeans. The Center for European Studies (CefES) aims to provide a forum of discussion to both Economists and Political Scientists interested in the current debate on Europe.
