Part of the European Studies Centre at the University of Oxford, SEESOX focuses on the interdisciplinary study of the relationship between European integration and the politics, economics and societies of the Balkans, Greece, Turkey and Cyprus.

Drawing on the academic excellence of the University and an international network of associates, it conducts policy relevant research on the multifaceted transformations of the region in the 21st century.

But they all need funding to allow them to happen. If you would like to support and sustain this important work, you can give now by clicking here.
