SWP in Brussels

Since it opened in 2009, the Brussels Office has served as the interface between SWP’s headquarters in Berlin and the political community in Europe’s capital. This allows SWP to offer research-based policy advice on foreign and security issues and European and international affairs on the ground in Brussels – in various, always confidential formats. The work is frequently conducted in cooperation with EU institutions, NATO, diplomatic missions, other think tanks, universities, political foundations, regional representations, business associations and NGOs.

Hosting over 35 events annually, with around 1600 participants (as of 2019), the SWP Brussels Office provides a networking platform bringing together political actors in Brussels and other capitals with SWP researchers from Berlin. SWP researchers frequently take part in hearings held by committees of the European Parliament or Council working groups. In 2019, the Brussels SWP office celebrated its 10th anniversary with colleagues from Brussels institutions and think tanks and then SWP Director Prof. Dr. Volker Perthes at a festive conference on "European Strategic Autonomy".

Groups and individuals visit the SWP Brussels Office to learn about the work of SWP and the think tank landscape in Brussels, and discuss current European and international issues with SWP colleagues. As well as experts and politicians from EU member states and third countries, they include delegations from the German Bundestag and federal state parliaments, scholars and students. The Brussels SWP offers a visiting scholar programme and internships. We look forward to hearing from you.
