State of Europe


Our annual high-level roundtable

State of Europe


Now celebrating its 16th anniversary, State of Europe is an invite-only roundtable that brings together the best minds across a range of fields. Global protagonists and decision-makers break out of their comfort zones and delve deep into the critical issues affecting Europe.

Switching track from the usual debates on Europe, this annual event promises a different lens through which to view the social, economic and political aspects of Europe and its relationship with the wider world.

Bringing together sitting and former prime ministers, to CEOs, NGO leaders, ministers of state, European Commissioners, and top journalists, State of Europe crowdsources recommendations on key policy areas to develop and define Europe´s future. Friends of Europe’s vibrant and diverse network of European Young Leaders brings fresh perspective to solving Europe´s problems, while the voice of citizens is heard through our 4.3 million citizen platform, Debating Europe.
