Alumni Testimonial


"ZEI made it possible for me to pursue a career at the World Bank Group. The comprehensive program set in a small-classroom environment gave me a greater understanding of the European Union and it's role in the larger context. I developed very meaningful friendships and valuable contacts as a result of this program that I continue to rely on to this day."

ZEI Monitor on the EU's Work Programme 2019-2024: The von der Leyen Commission

The ZEI Monitor traces the implementation of the annual work programmes of the European Commission. It provides researchers and practitioners with a research tool to continuously analyse the implementation and progress of the work programme. It is based on the six work priorities formulated by EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen for the term of office 2019-2024 and builds upon ZEI's previous work on the Juncker Commission between 2014 and 2019.
