The Contemporary European
Studies Association of Australia was launched
as an independent body on 16 March, 1991
in Melbourne. The initiative for such an
Association was based on the experience
of the national Associations for Contemporary
European Studies in each of the member states
of the European Union and elsewhere, which
is an experience of cooperation, sharing
of learning and research interests and dissemination
of information and critical analysis on
