Jean Monnet Network on Atlantic Studies presents results of three-year project

Over the last three years, Fundação Getulio Vargas’ International Intelligence Unit coordinated the “Jean Monnet Network on Atlantic Studies” project, co-financed by the European Union’s Erasmus+ program. The project involved a network of researchers at 10 research institutions and think tanks, spread across the four continents that border the Atlantic Ocean, in countries considered to be strategic to the EU.

Internationally renowned academics in the Jean Monnet Network contributed to the interdisciplinary exploration of three subjects of particular relevance to the EU: energy; economic and trade interactions; and human security challenges.

The project held various meetings over the course of three years, bringing together international experts to analyze relationships between energy and transportation, changes in trade links and human security threats in countries around the Atlantic Ocean.

Research activities gave rise to three books, reflecting interaction between the network’s academics and external specialists:

  • Energy & Transportation in the Atlantic Basin;
  • Trade and Commercial Interactions in the Atlantic Basin;
  • Evolving Human Security Challenges in the Atlantic Space.

These books present new ideas and knowledge about this important set of topics and help to frame debates on policies in these areas, in a modern international context. Both individual chapters and the complete final works are available in English in FGV’s Digital Library and also on the project’s website, as open research sources.

Printed copies of these works are also available for consultation in FGV’s Central Library. They will be an essential resource for students, academics and opinion leaders who want a better understanding of different subjects affecting the European Union and Atlantic Basin countries.
