Friends of Europe - Les Amis de l'Europe

Friends of Europe – Les Amis de l’Europe is a leading think-tank that aims to stimulate thinking on key global and European issues that span political, economic, social and environmental challenges. Their insightful and timely publications and animated debates provide access to sharp analysis and often produce bold recommendations. Friends of Europe promote the confrontation of ideas that is vital to policymaking and encourage wider involvement in Europe’s future.

Friends of Europe make Europe’s policy choices lively and relevant to people outside the "charmed circle" of Brussels-based specialists in debates and publications. The organisation is part of the Europe’s World Group, an independent and non-partisan alliance that also includes the Europe’s World policy journal and the Debating Europe online citizens’ platform. Europe’s World is the only pan-European policy journal offering policymakers and opinion-formers across Europe a platform for new ideas and for forging consensus. Debating Europe, with over 175,000 followers on Facebook and Twitter, engages citizens and policymakers in an ongoing conversation on the issues shaping Europe’s future.

Friends of Europe seeks to offer a voice to groups not traditionally represented in the EU debate, but who can make a difference: from regular citizens and young people to inuits or explorers on topics such as climate change, to people on the ground when we address development issues.
