Thinking Europe. Europa denken. Penser l'Europe.
This winter we break new ground at the Hertie School: We merge the former Jacques Delors Institute Berlin, a leading think tank on European policymaking, with the Hertie School’s academic research on European integration to form the new Jacques Delors Centre. At the Centre, scientific research on Europe will go hand in hand with the development of concrete ideas for European policymaking. The synergies between academic research and think tank work make the Jacques Delors Centre a unique place for European research, debate, and vision.
In our think tank work, our analyses provide an independent, non-partisan view of European policy processes and decisions. We develop concrete proposals for a better Europe. Through a variety of different formats and channels, we share our findings and ideas with decision-makers and the interested public and put political developments into perspective as they unfold.
In our academic research, we systematically close knowledge gaps on European integration. In close exchange with scholars from all over the world, we conduct theoretically-grounded empirical EU research from legal, political, and economic perspectives.
