Jean Monnet Centre
The Centre for European Law and Governance (CELAG) is an interdisciplinary research centre that brings together the extensive expertise on EU studies present in six schools of Cardiff University, namely the Law School, the Business School, the School of Social Sciences, the School of European Languages, Translation and Politics, the School of City and Regional Planning, and the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies. All these schools rank brilliantly on the UK national research assessment (RAE 2008); Social Sciences, and City and Regional Planning are the best in the country, European Studies is second in the UK, the Business School and Journalism are both fourth, while the Law School is the UK's 7th best.
CELAG has been recognised by the European Commission as a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence, and is co-ordinated by Prof. Stijn Smismans, who holds the Jean Monnet Chair in EU Law and Governance.
