DIRECTIONS

The European Union's official motto is 'United in Diversity', and this statement should also be reflected in intellectual diversity. Europe has a vast ecosystem of think tanks, civil society organisations, and NGOs - working to enrich the political discourse both in Brussels and at home. These institutions help to develop new ideas, and encourage debate - forming a core pillar of our democratic society. 

New Direction and Oikos are pleased to host this special Academy on the topic of the future of European civil society.
