Fostering debate and developing ideas on how to enhance the European Union.
The last decade has been marked by difficulties in finding common ground for the reform of the European Union and this has led to a slowdown in its development. And yet, thinking about how the EU should develop in order to meet the numerous challenges it faces is more important than ever. Together with its strategic partners, the King Baudouin Foundation encourages and stimulates debate that is free from taboos and as wide-ranging as possible on the future of Europe.
- we support the European Policy Centre, the Egmont Institute and projects such as the New Pact for Europe, in an effort to follow (trans)national debates on the future of the European Union
- and we bring together members of national parliaments so as to better understand the positions of the various European member states and political groups and to create networks and a platform for debate.
