New episode from TEPSA's "EuropeChats" and “European Council Studies” series

TEPSA created and shared a new YouTube talk-show about Europe: “EuropeChats”. In this show, TEPSA aims to answer the public’s questions about the European Union in a new and engaging way. TEPSA Secretary - General Jim Cloos sits down every episode to tackle a pertinent issue with TEPSA Executive Director Mariam Khotenashvili.

  • The first episode, which asks “What is the EU?”, is available to watch here: 
  • The second episode, which was published recently and asks “What is the European interest?”, is available to watch here: 

We invite you to watch and share the show among your personal and professional networks. “EuropeChats” has a particular interest not only for practitioners and academics, but also can be used for educational purposes among students and the broad European public.

Secondly, we would also like to inform you of the “European Council Studies” series, of which TEPSA Secretary-General Jim Cloos is on the Editorial Board.

The series, authored by Peter Ludlow (chairman of EuroComment, Founding Director of CEPS in Brussels, and formerly Professor of History at the European University Institute), follows the meeting pace of the EU Council, resulting in minimum 4 issues and maximum 10 issues annually, which provides extensive expert analysis of each meeting that takes place. It provides a Pre-Summit Briefing before each Council meeting, a Post-Summit Briefing seven days after each Council Meeting, and a subsequent extensive European Council Note analysing each meeting in-depth.

The Summit Briefings and European Council Notes, which cover every European Council meeting, can serve both as an authoritative source of information about current affairs, as a reference work which will remain relevant for years and even decades after the events which the Notes describe and, more fundamentally still, as the story of the development of a unique system of government, of which the European Council is the central component.

“European Council Studies” is one of the leading publications working to analyse the meetings of the European Council, and maintained this reputation for excellence over the last 20 years, therefore we highly recommend you to learn more about the series at this  link.
