Matrix is located on the 8th floor of Barrows Hall, on the UC Berkeley campus, near Telegraph and Bancroft Avenues, just up the hill from Sather Gate. There are entrances at both ends of the building, but only one of the elevators on the eastern side goes directly to the 8th floor. You can alternatively take the stairs to the 7th floor and walk up the stairs.
The Matrix Research Team focused on "Questioning the Evidence on the Integration of Immigrants in Europe" will host a workshop with Professor Christian Kaunert, Academic Director of the Institute for European Studies and Professor of European Politics, whose research focuses on the global security role of the EU, especially in the area of EU Justice and Home Affairs, with a particular focus on terrorism and counter-terrorism.
