Given recent and ongoing changes in the boundaries of European citizenship, the fragile institutional arrangements of the European social model, the postcolonial analysis of Europe in the world, the population dynamics that define who is European, Europe’s changing relationships with other regions and parts of world society, including the Global South, and the configuration of global hegemony, the year 2020 marks the moment for reflection. Having supported fifty years of research, CES is poised to advance these debates in various ways through cross-disciplinary global scholarship that deals with Europe in a comparative perspective.‚Äč
