Bringing together European Studies scholars and practitioners from across the island of Ireland to foster collaboration, source funding, and disseminate scholarly research on European Integration and membership of the EU.


The Irish Association for Contemporary European Studies (IACES) aims to bring together European Studies scholars and practitioners from across the island of Ireland to foster collaboration, source funding, and disseminate scholarly research on European Integration and membership of the EU. The association will also seek to contribute to future public and political discussion on the question of Ireland’s EU membership.


Our Aims

  • to promote teaching and research in contemporary European Studies;

  • to publish work of high quality in European Studies;

  • to maintain and foster links between tertiary educational institutions;

  • to foster links and collaboration among academics in Ireland and internationally;
