Centre for Research on the European Matrix

Welcome to the homepage of CRonEM! 

The Centre for Research on the European Matrix (CRonEM) is a new multidisciplinary research centre housed in the School of Politics at the University of Surrey. 

At CRonEM, we research European integration as a matrix of overlapping layers of governance, institutions and processes that shape how people of this continent live their lives and are governed, as well as how Europe engages the rest of the world. We understand the EU as a core part of this matrix, but not as a synonym for it.

CRonEM organises a series of research seminars, an annual conference and other events aimed at outreach beyond academia, particularly in the Surrey region. We also welcome proposals from visiting scholars with research interests that reflect our research agenda.

CRONEM was previously known as the Centre for Research on Nationalism, Ethnicity and Multiculturalism. A legacy page which hosts information about CRONEM’s previous work and events (2004-12) will be available soon.
