What does russia think?


The European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR)
is the first pan-European think-tank. Launched in
October 2007, its objective is to conduct research
and promote informed debate across Europe on the
development of coherent, effective and values-based
European foreign policy.
ECFR has developed a strategy with three distinctive
elements that define its activities:
A pan-European Council. ECFR has brought
together a distinguished Council of over one hundred
Members – politicians, decision makers, thinkers
and business people from the EU’s member states
and candidate countries – which meets twice a year
as a full body. Through geographical and thematic
task forces, members provide ECFR staff with advice
and feedback on policy ideas and help with ECFR’s
activities within their own countries. The Council is
chaired by Martti Ahtisaari, Joschka Fischer and
Mabel van Oranje.
A physical presence in the main EU member
states. ECFR, uniquely among European think-tanks,
has offices in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris and Sofia.
In the future ECFR plans to open offices in Rome,
Warsaw and Brussels. Our offices are platforms for
research, debate, advocacy and communications.
A distinctive research and policy development
process. ECFR has brought together a team of
distinguished researchers and practitioners from
all over Europe to advance its objectives through
innovative projects with a pan-European focus. ECFR’s
activities include primary research, publication of
policy reports, private meetings and public debates,
‘friends of ECFR’ gatherings in EU capitals and
outreach to strategic media outlets.
ECFR is backed by the Soros Foundations Network,
the Spanish foundation FRIDE (La Fundación para las
Relaciones Internacionales y el Diálogo Exterior), Sigrid
Rausing, the Bulgarian Communitas Foundation and
the Italian UniCredit group. ECFR works in partnership
with other organisations but does not make grants to
individuals or institutions.
