Informal opportunities to discuss current issues relating to the EU and Britain's engagement with it
Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence Cafes are open to all staff and students and follow the café scientifique model but with a different theme, namely that of providing an informal opportunity to discuss current issues relating to the European Union and Britain's engagement with it.
