CERI - Centre d'études et de recherches internationales
Mission and objectives
Established in 1952, CERI is the most preeminent research center in France that concentrates on both international / transnational relations and regional studies. CERI brings together scholars from several disciplines in the social sciences – first and foremost, political science, but also sociology, anthropology, history and economics.
Research at CERI is structured around five broad themes: politics and identities (including religion and nationalism); security and risks, international politics, regional integration and globalisation, and States and political systems.
CERI also reaches out to policy makers and government agencies (Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Defense…), media outlets, NGOs and corporations. It has a well-established tradition of organising public events and disseminating knowledge through its many publications, two academic journals (Critique Internationale and the European Review of International Studies) and a working papers series (Les Etudes du CERI).
