Website aims to link up social science research

September 11, 2002

Brussels, 10 Sep 2002

A new website managed by the University of Birmingham in the UK, in partnership with the European research institute and in collaboration with the social science information gateway (SOSIG), went live on 10 September. It will provide a valuable repository of information for researchers in the social sciences.

Among the materials listed on the 'Eurostudies on the Internet' website are official documents from numerous national parliaments, information on political science, international law, minorities and defence and national security.

The countries covered range from Scandinavia to Cyprus and from the UK to the Ukraine. The details are also presented in a variety of languages. The site will also offer peer reviewed learning, teaching resources and information focusing on new developments in European studies.
