Our goals and tasks
The IEP is a non-profit, non-partisan organisation concerned with European integration. Situated in Berlin, it is one of the leading foreign and European policy research institutions in the Federal Republic of Germany.
We work nationally and transnationally at the interface of science, politics, administration and political education. Our task is to scientifically investigate topics of European politics and integration in order to then promote the practical application of the research results.
The IEP offers a citizen-oriented, European and interdisciplinary forum as well as a platform for European policy debates among experts.
Subscribe to the IEP newsletter, which provides monthly information on current events and publications.
The Institute for European Politics currently employs about 30 staff members. They work in various functions in the areas of research, political education and training, events and publications as well as in central administrative tasks.
