European Civilization Chair
Thanks to the support of the European Union, and in particular the European Parliament, the Natolin campus of the College of Europe in Warsaw created the European Civilization Chair in memory of Professor Bronisław Geremek †. The mission of the Chair is to teach and encourage reflection on recent European history within the wider context of European Civilization, in the conviction that understanding Europe's past helps us to imagine and shape Europe's future. In particular, there is a focus on twentieth-century Europe's division and reunification. This is in keeping both with Professor Geremek's achievements as a medieval historian and the role he played in Poland and in Europe both before and after the fall of Communism.
European Neighbourhood Policy Chair
Rooted in an initiative by the European Parliament, the Natolin campus of the College of Europe created the European Neighbourhood Policy Chair which became operational on 1 July 2012. The mission of the Chair is to teach and encourage reflection on EU and EU member states' foreign policies towards the EU’s eastern and southern neighbourhood and to familiarize students with the multi-facetted security-related, political and socio-economic developments and structures in both neighbourhoods.
