Viessmann Discussion Paper on Europe Series
In 1992 a number of Laurier faculty members from different disciplines with a common interest in recent European developments, formed the Laurier European Interest Group (LEIG). The aim of LEIG is to foster research interest on contemporary Europe among faculty and graduate students, disseminate research results, to provide expertise on Europe, and to act as a liaison with similar interest organizations around the world. In conjunction with these aims, the group organizes guest lectures and other activities on Europe and publishes the Viessmann Discussion Paper Series on Europe. Any topic on modern day European development of relatively broad interest may be accepted for publication. Authors who are not members of LEIG are welcome and encouraged to submit manuscripts. The following lists the papers in this series to date.
