National Centre for Research on Europe
The National Centre for Research on Europe (NCRE) is New Zealand's only research centre devoted to the study of Europe and the European Union (EU). It fosters research on the EU that is regionally relevant, such as EU development policy in the Pacific, the EU's identity in the Asia-Pacific region and the external consequences of EU enlargement. The NCRE is firmly established as the focal point for the study of Europe in New Zealand, attracting visiting academics from all over the world.
The NCRE is the only EU-dedicated tertiary level centre in New Zealand. It leads national academic and outreach activities.
Our students choose from a multidisciplinary teaching programme that can include a wide range of courses.
Our research focuses on the EU from a number of angles and within the context of New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region.
In recognition of its national role, the National Centre for Research on Europe has sought to engage with all areas of New Zealand.
