Our Foundation hinges on Europe and democracy. Neither can stand without the other. Europe learnt democracy through its history and taught it to the world. Democracy is a fragile system which needs to be studied and thought through. For as a sagacious Asian said, “Studying without thought is labour lost; thought without study is perilous”. And this is why the Institute of European Democrats aims to serve Europe and democracy through study and thought.

About the IED
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. The majority of our events are organised in the EU Member States instead of Brussels, in order to bring the European debate closer to the EU citizen.
