Who we are

What we want

At the Centres for European Policy Network (cep) it is our mission to work for a better Europe. We analyse European legislation in a critical yet constructive manner and to make it both accessible and comprehensible to a wider public. The think-tank evaluates EU proposals – before they are passed – on the basis of modern market economics and economic principles.

How we work

cep is non-profit-making, non-affiliated and independent. EU proposals with relevance to the economy are analysed in cep PolicyBriefs, Inputs and Studies by our economists and legal experts. They also provide assessments on topical issues relating to Europe in the form of cepAdhocs. Our readers are decision-makers from politics, business, society and the media.

What we stand for

cep aims to bolster democratic and constitutional structures in Europe with a pro-European approach. It stands for a free Europe, completion of the internal market, less bureaucracy and the principle of subsidiarity. Motto: Europe Matters.
