SWP Brussels

Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP) maintains an office in Brussels, in order to facilitate exchange with the institutions of the EU and NATO, Brussels-based think tanks, NGOs and university institutes. Our Brussels office is a venue for politically independent, scientifically grounded debates on all aspects of European, transatlantic and international politics in a confidential framework. The objective is to sharpen awareness for German political processes in Brussels and gather ideas for ongoing research work at SWP’s Berlin headquarters.
