The Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies is at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at the University of Toronto.
The Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies (CERES) at the University of Toronto is one of North America's leading academic institutes for the study of the member countries of the European Union, the countries of the former Soviet Union, and Central and Eastern Europe. The Centre promotes interdisciplinary scholarship and teaching in the social sciences and humanities. Each year CERES organizes several regionally focused seminar series and is host to a number of scholars in residence. Drawing upon the expertise of more than fifteen departments and dozens of faculty members, CERES also sponsors an undergraduate degree program in European Studies and a Master's degree program in European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies.
Through its intensive relations with the European Commission, the German Academic Exchange Service, the wider local community in Toronto, and institutions of higher learning across Europe, Ukraine, and Russia, CERES supports the exchange of ideas and scholars across the Atlantic.
CERES's main objectives are:
-to educate students at the graduate and undergraduate level in the languages, history, politics, economics and societies of Europe, Russia, and Eurasia, and to prepare them for careers dealing with the region;
-to offer students at the University of Toronto valuable first-hand experience of the region through internship and exchange programs;
-to serve as a comprehensive, accessible, and authoritative source of information and analysis on the regions of Europe, Russia, and Eurasia for the Canadian news media, business community, and the general public;
-to promote scholarly links between East and West.
