Economics and European Studies in Cambridge

Founded in 1983, the Carleton Economics and European Studies Program has been located at the University of Cambridge for over 30 years. The summer seminar explores Britain’s evolving relationship with Europe through the prism of the Great War, the recent Brexit referendum and the writings of its most famous political economists. Courses are taught by the program director and Professor Solomos Solomou, a member of the Cambridge economics faculty. The group also spends 2 weeks in Brussels and Lille, studying European Union institutions and the memory of the Great War, and visits sites of the Industrial Revolution in Manchester and the British Midlands.
