The Interdisciplinary Research Cluster “TD21” coordinates conceptual and action-research activities on the past, present and future of transnational democracy in Europe and beyond. It aims to bring in conversation relevant scholarship across EUI within the broader ecosystem of EUI’s centers of excellence, including but not limited to the STG Transnational Democracy Programme, the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, the four Departments and other Clusters.
EUI Interdisciplinary Research Clusters
The Interdisciplinary Research Clusters are supported by the EUI as sites for interdisciplinary exchange and collaboration. They raise awareness within the EUI community of scholars’ specific expertise and interests, fostering interactions within and beyond the clusters themselves. They promote effective policy-relevant research, something that thrives on insights and solutions from multiple disciplines. The themes of the clusters address challenging issues that are vital to academic research and societies at large.
