Faculty & staff

The Department of European Political and Governance Studies relies on high-level academics and professionals to offer our students an intellectually stimulating and professionally enriching academic offer. Our professors come from numerous European and non-EU countries with diverse academic and professional backgrounds to ensure the highest academic standards on a broad range of topics.

The Department is directed by Prof. Olivier COSTA (FR), assisted by Prof. Michele CHANG (US), and by a team of six young and dynamic academic assistants: Eva GERLAND (FR), Frederik MESDAG (BE), Laura PIERRET (FR), Rachele TESEI (IT), Andrea SABATINI (IT) and Thijs VANDENBUSSCHE (BE).

43 visiting professors teach our courses and workshops.
