The Vision Europe Consortium

Our Modus Operandi

Vision Europe brings together partners which are highly respected voices in their national contexts and beyond, and which command a strong analytical base while maintaining an international outlook. The partners work on a pool of common socio-economic issues. These synergies are now joined in order to infuse national as well as European policy debates.

We are guided by the desire to advance cutting-edge thinking and to produce a common output containing policy recommendations. Our mouds operandi is therefore characterized by the common production of research papers and policy briefs as well as the interaction with public stakeholders and civil society.

Members of the think tanks and foundations engage in working groups in order to elaborate policy briefs on different aspects of the annual theme (in 2017: Winners and losers of globalization). Innovative policy options for reforms are developed. The policy briefs are presented to and debated with a high-level public on the occasion of the annual Vision Europe Summit. Additional research such as cross-country surveys allow connecting citizens’ attitudes to the policy recommendations expressed by Vision Europe.
