International conferences organised by the Department

To complement the academic programme, the Department organises lectures and conferences on a broad range of topics relevant to the study of EU International Relations and Diplomacy.

Practitioners and academics come to the College in order to present and discuss their views on current European and international affairs with the students. Guest lectures are either conducted within the framework of a specific course or are open to students from all departments.
