A New Departure for the European Union Brussels Think Tank Dialogue


For the fifth year in a row, ten leading European Think Tanks will join forces to host the annual Brussels Think Tank Dialogue (BTTD). This will be a unique opportunity to hear leading voices debate pressing issues, forecast major trends for the coming year, and put forward recommendations for the new European leadership. More than ever, guidance is needed. 


The Brussels Think Tank Dialogue 2015 will focus on such topical issues as:

- Revisiting Energy Security in Turbulent Times

- Towards a single European Labour Market

- Tomorrow’s EU migration policy


Experts from each think tank have produced background papers for each session, which are now available for download.
