Friends of Europe’s activities are designed to attract and interest both specialists and generalists. We bring together a wide range of stakeholders, and are particularly successful at bringing member-state actors to Brussels. The speakers and discussants at our events are not the “usual suspects”, but are people who bring fresh new thinking to challenge conventional wisdom.
