Policy Dialogues

Our high-level Policy Dialogues bring scholars and leaders from economic, political and social sectors together to discuss the most pressing issues on transnational and European agendas. The informal, private setting allows policy-makers to engage in the ideas of leading scholars, whilst collaborating with industry peers away from the constraints of traditional decision-making fora.

Participation in Policy Dialogues is by invitation only. After the event, the STG will publish a Policy Brief to promote further discussion, engagement and collaboration. Policy Briefs are available on Cadmus, the EUI's Research Repository. All the Policy Briefs are open access.
