JEAN MONNET NETWORK “DEVELOPING EUROPEAN STUDIES IN THE CAUCASUS“ (DESCNet) PDF Print

 

 

Starting from September 2015 the Centre for European Studies of the Yerevan State Univwersity was part of the Jean Monnet Network "Developing European Studies in the Caucasus" (DESCNet project).

Originally conceived of by the University of Graz’ Russian East European & Eurasian Studies Centre (REEES), it was coordinated by the Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies at the University of Tartu. DESCnet was designed to enhance the level of European Studies in the Caucasus. At its heart the goal was to create a scholarly association (“Association of European Studies for the Caucasus”, AESC).

DESCnet stands for the Network for Developing European Studies in the Caucasus, which is a Jean Monnet Network designed with the aim to enhance the level of European Studies in the Caucasus region. The network consists of 9 partner universities from Europe and the wider Caucasus region and represents a novel approach towards promoting the idea of European Studies in the Caucasus.
