Welcome to the Centre for European Studies


Dear friend, in July 2006 when we founded this unique educational and research institution we had a vision of becoming a rock solid foundation for strengthening and deepening European values in the Armenian society. We believe in the vision of “Armenia in Europe” and we are certain the way to political, social and economic development should be paved with the embracing of European values. Hence knowledge-based society and research-based governance is the key to developing a welfare state.


To meet its goals, the Centre for European Studies has voluntarily taken the responsibility for enhancing the development of education society through graduate programmes and supporting the public sector with sound, data based and analytical researches. Hence, we welcome any initiative of innovation that is in tune with our vision.


We sincerely thank you for having visited our website and hope it will prove to be useful to your needs.
