New Research Project “The Truth about Lies on Europe”

The Institute for European Politics, together with the Progressive Zentrum, began a research project in June of this year on ratio­nal­izing the debate about Europe in Germany. The goal of the project is to contribute system­at­i­cally and analyt­i­cally to the decon­struction of false claims, bogeymen, and preju­dices. In so doing, readers will be informed of not only the advan­tages, but also the risks of the European Union.

Together with our partner, DPZ, the IEP will promote and sustain an inter­active debate on the topic. Accord­ingly, the analysis results will be directed to relevant repre­sen­ta­tives from politics and civil society for further devel­opment and to weaken the basis of populist arguments.

The Truth about Lies on Europe is supported by Stiftung Mercator.
