The Pan-European Institute (PEI) observes the economic development in the Baltic Sea region and in the EU's neighboring countries, particularly in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine.
Based on the research at the Institute, PEI provides basic degree education at the Turku School of Economics (TSE). At TSE, PEI operates under the unit of Marketing and International Business.
PEI conducts research funded by international institutions, Finnish governmental organisations, and the Academy of Finland, as well as large corporations. Furthermore, PEI publishes the Baltic Rim Economies (BRE) review for experts to write about current themes and events in the Baltic Sea region.
