The Centre for EU Studies (CEUS) is a research group of Ghent University whose staff members, led by prof. Jan Orbie, conduct high-level research on different aspects of the EU's external policies, the internal-external policy nexus, and decision-making processes on external action. In addition, the CEUS is the driving force behind the (mostly Dutch-language) Master programme in EU Studies at Ghent University.
