The Jean Monnet Chair was designed as a place to learn and exchange on Europe. It encourages the teaching and study of the European Union in Canada, engages students in research on European issues and makes the results available to the general public. With these three objectives in mind, it is intended both for students and researchers as well as for journalists and all those who wish to obtain information on the EU.
The EuroScope Project relies on an interactive and inclusive approach. Please feel free to contact us for further questions and information.
On this website, you will find an overview of recent and upcoming activities. There is also a toolbox containing information on the EU. This tool is jointly maintained by students and academics. Furthermore, EuroScope offers interviews with scholars of all levels presenting their current research projects. It also provides information on courses given at the University of Montreal within the framework of the Chair.
Jean Monnet Chairs are financed by the European Commission. They are assigned to professors who distinguish themselves with their research in European studies and an innovative pedagogical approach in teaching Europe.
Laurie Beaudonnet holds the Jean Monnet Chair for the University of Montreal from 2015 to 2018.
