A permanent presence at the heart of the European Union’s debates
Located at the heart of Brussels, the office constitutes since 2005 the main link between Ifri’s research and debates and the European institutions. The office fosters the wealth and skills of Ifri’s researchers.
Constantly seeking innovative approaches, Ifri Brussels’ events strive to tackle hot issues as well as understudied ones, in various formats in which Ifri expertise guarantees hih added value.
Ifri Brussels also contributes to Ifri’s research effort. Its work focuses on important issues on the European agenda: the future of the EU’s institutional structure, its implications on the European political and economic landscape, and on the perceptions of citizens in various member states. Its work aims to shed light on current issues and the interest of actors and stakeholders involved, which are too often overlooked to analyse institutional processes.
The office can also join its forces with other actors. Ifri Brussels organises, every year, the Brussels Think Tank Dialogue, in partnership with nine other European think tanks. It gathers European decision makers and stakeholders to discuss hot topics on the EU’s agenda for the year to come. This high-level conference has become a high point in Brussels welcoming hundreds of participants.
