The Centre for European and Transition Studies (CETS) was established in 2000 at the University of Latvia. Its aim is to promote and support interdisciplinary academic and applied research on European issues, involving students from both European Union Member States and Third Countries. At CETS, our program incorporates economics, political science, law, public administration and regional policy issues.

The centre hosts Jean Monnet and Marie Curie European Commission projects, providing advices to public institutions on economic and social development in the context of European integration. CETS is an internationally recognized forum of debate for academics, postgraduates and practitioners on the current trends in European development from the perspective of a new Member State.
