The European Union is the most successful global supranational institution. It has brought together nations that were at war half a century ago, and has created synergies and unities not only in the economic sphere, but also across societies, political entities, cultures and linguistic groups.
The confederation of nations that is Europe plays an increasingly visible role in world affairs and contemporary culture. The European presence on the world stage is significant in domains as diverse as diplomacy, popular culture, the economy, the environment, the arts, and sports. In Australia, many European nations have in recent history contributed to our identity, and those nations themselves have a rich and ancient linguistic and cultural history.
European Studies was established in 1993 with the very broad aim of promoting research and teaching in European-related areas of study. In 2006 the European Studies program was changed to reflect the realities of cross-cultural and politico-economic influences, as well as the increasingly inter-disciplinary nature of research and teaching.
