This section of the EUC Blog chronicles the travels to various member and candidate countries of the European Union by affiliates of the European Union Center (EUC) at the University of Illinois.
"Across the Pond" is a dynamic, online travelogue that shares the unique and valuable insights of the students and faculty of a midwestern U.S. university as they explore the social, political, cultural, and economic movements that are shaping the European Union and transatlantic relations today.
