European Council Studies

Press Release | A New Publisher for the Journal European Council Studies from 2023 onwards

From 2023 onwards the journal European Council Studies will no longer be published by Leuven University Press. EuroComment will publish a significantly expanded version of the series. 

This is a joint decision by Leuven University Press and EuroComment based on changes in the publishing world and in EuroComment’s publications and meetings programmes. Leuven University Press wants to thank Peter Ludlow, the editorial board, and all subscribers for their support and we will do all the necessary for a fluent transition of the journal.

Subscriptions and renewals starting in 2022 will be invoiced by Leuven University Press and transferred to EuroComment in January 2023.

European Council Studies
, previously known as EuroComment’s Pre-Summit Briefings and European Council Notes, are uniquely valuable. Launched twenty

years ago and based on a wide range of published and unpublished sources, including interviews with key players, they provide a continuous, highly readable and independent narrative of the politics and policies of the European Council, the EU’s principal decision-making institution.

This journal by Leuven University Press should be of interest to everybody inside or outside government who is involved in or with the European Union.
