EUCTIRL is a multi-disciplinary Jean Monnet Chair. It provides research-led excellence in teaching and learning at the intersection of two fundamental areas of EU policy – the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (formerly known as Justice and Home Affairs) and EU counter-terrorism policy and law (also within the CFSP, notably in relation to counter-terrorist financing). The objective is pursued by advancing cutting-edge learning formats, strong inter-disciplinarity, policy relevance through three courses (including distance and blended learning) and contributing to the creation of a Jean Monnet Chair in Terrorism and Security in the EU – the first such hub in Ireland, and one of the very few in Europe as a whole. We are a three-year (2022-2025) Jean Monnet Chair funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme.
