The Department of Political Science at UMAAS has significant competencies in EU institutions; EU democracy and civil society; EU migration policy; and EU external relations. Within the area of EU external relations, Maastricht scholars have especially paid attention to foreign, security and neighbourhood policy, adopting distinctive institutionalist perspectives. UMAAS has participated in many European and national projects on EU foreign and security policy and is well suited to contribute expertise to the EU-CIVCAP project, particularly with regard to institutional aspects and cooperation with other international actors.
