Centre for European Regional and Local Studies EUROREG, University of Warsaw

The Centre for European Regional and Local Studies (EUROREG) based in the University of Warsaw is Poland's leader in interdisciplinary research and education in the field of regional and local studies and policies. It forms a part of the Centre for Latin American Studies (CESLA) and the American Studies Center (OSA).

The Centre offers four-semester postgraduate (MA) programmes in Spatial Economy. The programme includes a range of interdisciplinary courses in: geography, economics, public governance, management, sociology, political studies, international relations and statistics. Special attention is paid to critical analysis of the implementation and effects of EU policies (territorial, cohesion and competition) as well as regional and global governance. EUROREG has recently started two postgraduate (MA) programmes: the Academy of Regional Development (ARR) and the Academy of Evaluation (AE).

At present, the EUROREG staff has 19 research personnel (specialising in economics, sociology, political science, law and administration) and 7 support personnel. EUROREG cooperates with a large number of scientific and research institutions, organisations and universities. EUROREG is also engaged in many wide-ranging projects, analyses and expert’s studies. EUROREG is also a partner or a coordinator of many seminars or conferences, also international. EUROREG has a broad offer of publications, mostly in Polish, and, though less so, in English.
