About the IED

IED Events

The Institute of European Democrats (IED), is a non-profit association based in Brussels. It is an innovative European political and cultural Research Institute that offers fresh political ideas as well as a strong and respected cultural background to the European Democratic Party (EDP) to which it is formally affiliated. It is steered by the Board of Directors and supported by a Scientific Committee.

In order to contribute to develop a political debate at the EU level, where alternative policies confront each other, the IED is organizing conferences and seminars where politicians, experts, EU and national officials, academics and others can discuss critically. In addition the IED regularly publishes Podcasts and Publications to enhance solutions for common policy challenges in Europe.
