EURINT 2018 conference | Reflecting on Europe’s (dis)order: scenarios for the EU’s future, Iasi, Romania
The Centre for European Studies within Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi organizes the seventh EURINT edition, May 18-19, 2018. The event is part of the EURINT conference series which was successfully launched in 2013 in the frame of the Jean Monnet Life Long Learning Programme.
