The Centre for European Studies (CES) was established by the Council of Chulalongkorn University in October 1997, as an upgrade of the Chulalongkorn University European Studies Programme (CUESP), an ESP project funded by the European Commission since 1993. The Centre carries on the activities of the CUESP, with the aim of providing an academic excellence in European Studies in Thailand and the ASEAN region.
The main objective of Centre for European Studies is to create a better understanding among Thai academics, students, political and business makers, government officials and the Thai civil society about the European Union’s affairs, in particular the European integration process, and the interaction between ASEAN/Thailand and Europe . It is also to disseminate knowledge and up-to-date information on European affairs within Thailand and the ASEAN region by the means of international workshops, conferences, training programmes, teaching and publications.
The fact that networking is a crucial factor in the world of increasing academic interaction, CES sets to develop and promote a co-operative network between Thai/ASEAN and European scholars through a stimulating intellectual environment. The Centre also seeks to build up linkages between Thai and European institutions, as well as at the ASEAN and EU levels.
To these effects, the Centre organises international conferences and seminars; undertakes various researches; publishes journals and books; offers a wide range of research support facilities at the European Document Centre (EDC) in collaboration with the Centre for Academic Resources; and jointly co-ordinates an M.A. programme in European Studies in collaboration with the Graduate School of Chulalongkorn University.
