The Brussels Office of the Bertelsmann Stiftung

The Brussels office of the Bertelsmann Stiftung, one of Europe’s largest private foundations, was established in 2000. The office is located in the heart of the EU district and close to the European institutions.

As a think tank in Europe’s capital, we contribute to the development of an integrated Europe that is built on the values of freedom, humanity and solidarity. The focus of our work is to advance Europe’s potential as a global player in foreign, security, economic and social policy. We analyze worldwide policy approaches and apply lessons learned from them to help Europe realize its vision of a "Union of Member States and Citizens".

The Bertelsmann Stiftung’s Brussels office promotes transnational debate about future challenges facing Europe and its citizens. We provide European institutions, stakeholders, think tanks and media with key findings of our project work. Our work is based on the early detection of upcoming international developments that impact Europe and influence the Stiftung's worldwide agenda.

The extremists' hour

Candidates ran for the office of European Commission president, while euroskeptics and the EU's opponents dominated media reports. This year's European elections were different than all the others since 1979, when members of the European Parliament were directly elected for the first time. Joachim Fritz-Vannahme, director of the Europe's Future program at the Bertelsmann Stiftung, takes a look at what the voters had to say.

No network among Europe's populist parties

Unlike pro-European groups, populist euroskeptic parties have not formed extensive online networks. That is one of the findings of a new Bertelsmann Stiftung study which examined the connections between 988 anti-European websites in six countries. As the study also shows, not only are the euroskeptics isolated at the European level, they remain disconnected in their national environments as well.
