L'Europe en formation
The quarterly journal L’Europe en formation deals with European integration, international relations and federalism, with a transdisciplinary approach bringing together political philosophy, law, economics, sociology and culture.
The review was launched in 1960. It began as an alumni publication, but quickly turned into a monthly review devoted to the study of European issues and federalism. It became a quarterly in 1979, with a new focus on analysis and future perspectives of European integration.
Since 2008 the journal has been enhancing its scholarly profile, by setting up a reading committee to ensure the quality of submitted articles.
Each issue is now devoted to a specific topic covering its various dimensions.
In 2011, L’Europe en formation will join the scholarly journal distribution website Cairn ( Also, all the texts published in the review over its fifty years of existence will soon be available on the Internet.

Policy papers
The CIFE research team is publishing policy papers, on a regular basis.
Every colleague is presenting, analyse, highlight, a topic of his/her own competence, in the form of a three to five pages long paper – readable even for busy people, and hopefully of interest for the wide range of CIFE’s academic, political and civil society network.
We do not aim at a deepened scientific analysis (even if that may be the background and fundament of the author), but at a pointed short argument; we do not aim at advice for politicians (even if that may be one of the benefits politicians may draw from the paper), but at a standpoint toward current topics of European interest.
The papers is of easy access: simply click on this page.
We hope you appreciate the reading, and we appreciate your feedback!
