The IEP wishes happy holidays and a good new year 2017

The news about the deaths at the Berlin Christmas market on Monday before Christmas inter­rupts the festive prepa­ra­tions and makes us pause.

Never­theless, we are looking back on an eventful and successful year with many events and publi­ca­tions. We would like to take this oppor­tunity to thank you very much for your interest in our work.

Many of the focus areas of our work this year — German Europol­itics, Brexit, Euroskep­ticism and populism, stability in the economic and monetary union, conse­quences of the refugee crisis, flexible integration and European neigh­borhood policy — will remain relevant to us in 2017. New topics will be added if only due to the elections in the Nether­lands, France and Germany.

We wish you and your family a happy new year and look forward to accom­pa­nying you in 2017 with events and scien­tific analyses on European policy and integration.
