About the IEP


Since its founding in 1959, the Institute for European Politics (IEP) has been a non-profit organi­zation dedicated to the study of European integration. It is one of the leading foreign and European policy research centres in the Federal Republic of Germany and serves as a forum for exchange between academia, politics, admin­is­tration and political education.
