From the European Institute

Dear Friends,

         As you may already know, The European Institute has ceased operations. I am happy to inform you, however, that in the next few months, the rich work of The European Institute, captured on our website (, will be archived and available to all on the website of the University of Maryland’s Center for International Policy Exchanges ( Until then, the University will continue to maintain the existing URL and website.

          Thanks to many of you, The European Institute has served as the leading public policy organization in Washington devoted solely to Transatlantic Relations since its founding in 1989. The core of our mission has been to facilitate the exchange of information between public policy makers in both Europe and the United States, so as to deepen the understanding of the breadth of European perspectives on key issues of common concern, and to help build consensus on mutually beneficial resolutions.

          The European Institute’s policy journal, European Affairs, has been invaluable in strengthening the direct exchanges facilitated through our many meetings by drawing on a wide network of prominent experts to build a rich and comprehensive body of work on contemporary issues at the core of European-American relations. Going back to 2000, articles and blogs are archived and well indexed on the Institute’s site. 

              We are grateful to the University of Maryland for making this valuable material available to all. If you have any questions, please contact Jason Scott at
