The Institute of Contemporary European Studies is directed by Professor John Drew with the support of distinguished Visiting Fellows, research associates, senior European experts and group partners.
iCES is linked to a series of partnership networks with the European Business Schools International (EBSI), embassies and cultural institutes. It also collaborates with the Senior European Experts group (SEE), the European Commission Representation in the UK and the European Government Business Relations Council.
The SEE consists of six former UK Ambassadors to the EU, former senior officials in EU institutions (including the former Secretary General of the Commission, Lord Williamson) and others who have worked in a senior position in or with EU institutions.
The SEE has no party-political affiliation. As an independent group, it makes its Briefing Notes available to the European Movement, the All-Party EU Parliamentary Group and to others interested in European affairs.
The Senior Experts group produces papers on contemporary European issues drawing on the extensive knowledge and experience of its members. The Senior Experts group has an archive of papers at the European Movement site and they publish position papers with the European Movement and with iCES.
EBSI is a network of European Business Schools that includes the European Business School Paris, the European Business School London, the European Business School Madrid, the European Business School Dublin, Munich Business School, the International School of Management Dortmund, the European Business School Riga – the Baltic Russian Institute and the European Business School Kaliningrad.
