Jean Monnet Chair EXPAND
EXPAND – EXPLAINING RESILIENCE IN EU JUSTICE AND HOME AFFAIRS
A warm welcome to the homepage of EXPAND, the Jean Monnet Chair of professor Florian Trauner at the Institute for European Studies of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB).
EXPAND (Explaining resilience in EU Justice and Home Affairs) provides research-led excellence in teaching on the resilience of the EU in general and in the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice in particular. The Chair provides an IES delegation of students with the opportunity to participate at the ‘EuroSim Model European Union’ and conducts a range of other activities including workshops, lectures and a podcast series.
“ The objective of the chair is to engage students, academics, policymakers, and practitioners in a dialogue on the ways in which the EU institutions have incorporated lessons from previous crises and have – or have not – made the European integration project more resilient”
