Thinking about Europe
Jean Monnet support to European studies
In 1989, the European Commission launched the Jean Monnet action to support academic research in European integration. The programme originally addressed academics in the Member States, but came to include those in accession countries soon after. Today, it has a global scope. In many ways a niche operation, the Jean Monnet activities have nevertheless been celebrated as some of the most successful examples of European Union (EU) support. This publication is a testimony to its achievements. It shows that among its beneficiaries there is little doubt that the programme served its purpose in a... tremendously effective way. Jean Monnet grants are indubitably among the European subsidies that have given the entire EU most value for money.
