About the Project

The Project on Europe and the Transatlantic Relationship aims to strengthen the University’s capacities for teaching, research and policy on the relationship between the U.S. and Europe. The program is designed to deepen a relationship which has—for over 70 years—served as an anchor of global order, driven the expansion of the world economy, provided peace and stability and reunited peoples once divided by war. In doing so, we hope to prepare a new generation of leaders on both sides of the Atlantic. Our specific aims are two-fold. One, to deepen the Kennedy School’s commitment to research on Europe, to create a Chair in European Studies and to expand our teaching on modern European politics, NATO, the European Union, Russia, Ukraine, and other states of the region. Two, to expand our understanding and support for the transatlantic relationship and the free societies and democratic foundations that are its core. 

To apply, please send the Executive Director, Cathryn Clüver Ashbrook, a letter of interest and résumé at Cathryn_Cluver_Ashbrook@hks.harvard.edu by December 2nd, 2019.
