Associate: Lemnitzer Center for NATO and European Union Studies, Kent
Kent State University's Lyman L. Lemnitzer Center for NATO and European Union Studies devotes its activities to the expansion and dissemination of scholarly knowledge about NATO, the European Union, and related European-American issues. The Center was originally established in 1979 to provide an institutional setting for the academic examination of the historical, political, economic, and military experiences of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. A decision was made in 1991 to expand the mission of the Center to include an emphasis on the European Community.
Scholarly meetings sponsored or cosponsored by the Lemnitzer Center have resulted in eleven books. The Lemnitzer Center also launched an occasional papers series in 1992 and a conference papers series in 1999. The Center has research associates from Kent State and other universities who participate regularly in its scholarly activities and contribute to its publications.
