Welcome to the Pan-European Institute

The University of Essex created the Pan-European Institute in the summer of 1997. PEI was designed to bring together and build upon the outstanding achievements of the former Centres for European Studies and for Russian Studies, especially in the areas of European integration and post-communist studies.

PEI's interests therefore encompass the whole of the "new" Europe, from Ireland to the Russian Far East. Its creation also consolidated the University's success in attracting new posts in the area of Former Soviet Union and Eastern European studies, funded by HEFCE, the Higher Education Funding Council for England.

PEI is able to draw upon the full range of the University's excellence in teaching and research, although does not employ its own staff, save for its Executive Officer, Mrs Lynn Baird. Members of academic staff with links to PEI are active in the social sciences, humanities, law - from commercial law to the protection of human rights - and the natural sciences, particularly the environmental sciences.
