 Brief description of your activity focus
The Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence is a pool of scientific skills on European integration issues,based in France

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
It brings together seven Jean Monnet Chairs, lecturers and researchers from the University of Rennes I,
from the University of Rennes 2, from the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan- Antenne de Bretagne ,
from Télécom Bretagne and soon from the French Military Academy of Saint Cyr Coëtquidan in law,
economics, geography/town and country planning, and history relating to European issues.

It is well-known throughout Europe and trains students, directs research activities and offers a resource
centre and a library specialising in European integration issues. It promotes a better understanding of the
European Union by the general public, especially through its public lectures called Rendez-vous dEurope.

 International and national projects beyond EU Framework Programme
International Network on Regional Integrations awarded by an UNESCO Chair and an International Research
Network (CNRS)

Our aim is to organise a multidisciplinary, international network focusing the competences of experts in law,
economics, geography, sociology and political science on the theme of Worldwide regional integration:
convergence and divergence for which there is a scientific demand.

Globalisation clearly calls for a reorganisation of levels of governance. By themselves, States are often powerless
to solve certain problems. Because they group together States that are less heterogeneous than world
organisations, regional integration organisations can help improve governance, promote sustainable
development, and even serve as ‘laboratories” for future world regulations.


The « Regional integrations UNESCO Chair undertakes a comparative analysis of the main regional integration
networks throughout the world, of their defining features and policies, and, on the other hand, conducts an
analysis of the commercial and political aspects of the relations within these networks in order to further a better
understanding of regional integration agreements and their role in worldwide governance


The « Regional Integrations » UNESCO Chair was awarded to the University of Rennes 1 in 2010 for 4 years.



The Chair which is managed by the Jean Monnet Centre of excellence in Rennes, brings together lecturers,
researchers and doctoral students working on regional integrations issues in Latin America (El Colegio de México,
Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil), in the French Caribbean (le Centre de Recherche sur les
Pouvoirs Locaux dans la Caraïbe, UMR 8053 CNRS / UAG aux Antilles ), in Africa ( Cheikh Anta DIOP University in
Dakar , Sénégal, in the University of Ouagadougou II, Burkina Faso), in Asia (Chulalongkorn University in
Thaïland)

Close cooperation links have been developed by the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in Rennes with the above-
mentioned foreign centres, through researcher mobility and joint projects, and in particular through the workshop
entitled “Regards croisés sur les intégrations régionales Europe / Amériques en lien avec l’Afrique”
(“Interdisciplinary perspectives on regional integration between Europe and the Americas, with links to Africa”) a
workshop organised in Rennes on June 11-12 2008 by the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in Rennes and the
Rennes Institut des Amériques (Institute of the Americas), an event that brought together 22 professors and
researchers from the Universities of Porto Alegre (Brazil), the French Caribbean (French Guyana), Dakar
(Senegal), Picardy, Mexico, Liège, Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso), and Rennes, including 4 Jean Monnet Chairs. A
book has been produced as a result of the event, entitled Regards croisés sur les intégrations régionales Europe /
Amériques en lien avec l’Afrique.


This Chair comprises::

- a “research” constituent focussing on a comparative approach and relations between Union and other
integrations (Africa/the Caribbean/the Americas/Asia). All topics, including those relating to social, human and
security issues, will be subject to a multidisciplinary approach.


- a “formation” constituent, by means of which each of the network’s partners is to offer a range of courses on
regional integrations, and which is open to advanced students and young researchers.

This regional integration network has a dual purpose: to compare existing regional integration agreements and to
analyze the relations and interactions between them.

Its scientific impact will be two-fold by:

- Meeting the need for an interdisciplinary approach to the issues under study: studies of regional integration
agreements of course already exist, but are often restricted to certain aspects of the agreement or limited to one
particular discipline.

Interdisciplinary interfaces are too often neglected, save for the interactions between the economic and the
political dimensions (as in International political economy). This is particularly true when it comes to the
institutional dimensions, despite their crucial importance in understanding the integration processes, both at the
political level and the economic level.

Using the research potential of the Centre d’Excellence Jean Monnet, the network will seek to optimize synergies
in the study of issues such as the economic and monetary Union (law-economics), territorial cohesion policies
(geography-economics-planning-law), key players (political science-planning-law-economics), relations between
integrated areas (political science-law-economics).

- Developing comparative analysis of regional integrated areas: existing research is fragmented and too little
comparative research is being undertaken. Studies have been carried out in various regions of the world on locally
relevant integration practices.

The major strength of the programme is in its ability to promote cross investigation, to question the European
Community model which is often taken as a reference and to compare a wide range of integration experiments
with their different aims and objectives, organizations, methods and results.

Methodological approach:

One of the networks first axes is to develop the analysis and comparison tools that can be used by all the
partners, taking into account the various subject areas involved.

Studies are based on the relevant texts and rulings and on the informal and formal practices involved, as well as
on the role played by various players, both institutional (organizations, States, local government) and non
institutional (companies, unions, associations, etc.).
