CES Working Papers (CESWP) is a peer-reviewed academic journal with four issues a year. Being launched in 2009 under the Centre for Excellence Jean Monnet for European Studies, CESWP aims to provide young researchers the opportunity to publish the results of their research activities, to get feedback from other researchers, to improve the methodology and to validate their results. Moreover, CESWP fosters an increased visibility of their work, as it is indexed in various international databases.


CESWP seeks submissions across a broad spectrum of topics related to European Studies, such as:

  • Economic integration process

  • European Union in the XXIst century

  • European institutions and policies

  • Regional development and competitiveness

  • The challenges of the EU enlargement process

  • European Business Environment

  • Globalisation and regionalism  

The papers reflect only the views of the authors, thus the Centre for European Studies or the Editorial Board cannot be held responsible for the information contained therein.
