Director's message

Launched in 2010, the Global Governance Programme of the Schuman Centre has built over time a community of outstanding professors and scholars, produced high level research, engaged with the world of practice through policy dialogue, and contributed to fostering present and future generations of policy makers through its trainings. 2016 has been a year of important developments and this newsletter intends to highlights some of them. We hope you will enjoy it!
