Europe, Russia & Eurasia

The role of NATO, U.S. defense policy, international business, trade, labor markets, social movements, and racial and ethnic identities represent a handful of interests of scholarly research in Europe, Russia, and Eurasia.  Our scholars' expertise covers EU-wide strategies and policies as well as more targeted analyses within EU member states.  From an analysis of the single market to German industrial relations, to nonproliferation strategies, our scholars' research contributes to contemporary policy issues relevant to European affairs.
