Duodecim Astra – College of Europe Student Journal of European Studies

About the journal

Duodecim Astra – College of Europe Student Journal of European Studies is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary student-run journal launched by students of the 2020/21 Mário Soares promotion of the College. The journal publishes articles in French and English, accepting submissions related to European studies.

This year’s guiding principle is ‘Unfolding European Integration’. To address this theme, we welcome contributions in all areas of European studies and encourage submitting papers from very diverse academic disciplines and research methods. Submissions are welcome on a range of topics, including enlargement, the history of European integration, reflections on the Europeanisation process or research focusing on identity, migration, foreign policy, political economy and the rule of law in an era characterised by the concept of poly-crisis.

‘The EU stands in a historical momentum that encourages us to examine the past and envision the future. In the midst of an enlargement process implying institutional questioning concerning the nature and direction of the integration process, the very meaning of Europe and the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead, suggest an important time for reflections on the EU’s strategic recalibration. The issue's guiding principle is thus to unfold and dissect the European integration project.’

This year, Duodecim Astra is very proud to have gathered a scientific committee composed of renowned scholars in the field of European studies. We are grateful for their invaluable support and enthusiasm for the project. Listed in alphabetical order:
