We are an online monthly journal of ideas, art, and politics relating to Europe, with a blog that publishes weekly. We feature research, criticism, and journalism on Europe alongside literary nonfiction, fiction, poetry, translations, and visual art from or concerning Europe. Our contributors are established and emerging academics, artists, authors, and journalists from a wide range of countries, while the editorial staff and committee similarly consist of both experienced and emerging editors.

Our mission is to provide a unique, kaleidoscopic understanding of political and academic topics, and to expand this dialogue to literature and the arts.

EuropeNow is published by the Council for European Studies (CES) at Columbia University, a non-profit organization that recognizes outstanding, multi-disciplinary research on Europe through a wide range of programs and initiatives. These include fellowships, grants, publications, awards, conferences and meetings, public lectures and symposia, as well as direct research and artistic collaboration. CES is particularly committed to supporting research that can play a critical role in understanding and applying the lessons of European history and integration to contemporary problems, including those in the areas of global security, sustainability, environmental stewardship, and democracy

Since 1979, CES has hosted the International Conference of Europeanists, the world’s largest and most prestigious professional gathering for academics, researchers, and policy specialists focusing on Europe, with more than a thousand scholars attending. The Conference is held each year and alternates location between Europe and North America.
