Background

Martin Holland has been a member of Canterbury's academic staff since 1984. During that time he has developed European Studies, first as a member of the Political Sciences Department and since 2000 as Director of the National Centre for Research on Europe. In 2004, the NCRE was designated a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence by the EU's Directorate-General for Education and Culture. Notable fellowships awarded include:

  • Jean Monnet Fellow, European University Institute, 1987;
  • Alexander von Humboldt Fellow, Freiburg, 1992-4;
  • Rockerfeller Bellagio Fellow, 2000;
  • Jean Monnet Chair of European Integration and International Relations, 2002-6.

Professor Holland is the author of some thirteen books, the most recent of which include The European Union and the Third World (Palgrave, 2002) and The Common Foreign and Security Policy: The First Decade (Continuum, 2003). He has served as an EU election observer (in South Africa, 1994), advised on a range of EU policy areas and since 2001 has been a Jean Monnet Chair of European Integration and International Relations. He was appointed as the NCRE founding professor in 2002, and is currently the vice-president of the Asia-Pacific EU Studies Association.
