    Goals / Remit

    The Centre for European Reform is a think-tank devoted to making the European Union work better and strengthening its role in the world. The CER is pro-European but not uncritical. We regard European integration as largely beneficial but recognise that in many respects the Union does not work well. We also think that the EU should take on more responsibilities globally, on issues ranging from climate change to security. The CER aims to promote an open, outward-looking and effective European Union.

    Main EU files targeted

    The Centre for European Reform covers a wide range of policies and legislative files related to our main areas of interest. These include, but are not restricted to:

    • EU economic and financial policies: the euro and the Eurozone, single market & competition policy, growth and competitiveness, financial services and regulation, trade policy, labour markets, education and skills, research and innovation
    • EU energy and climate policies: energy security, energy markets and climate change
    • EU foreign and defence policy
    • EU neighbourhood and enlargement policies
    • EU regional policies
    • EU budgetary policies
    • Institutional structure and relationships
    • EU treaties
    • EU Justice and Home Affairs policies: internal security, freedom of movement, police and judicial co-operation, migration and asylum policies
    • EU relationships with member-states: EU-UK relationships

    Communication activities

    Through our meetings, seminars and conferences, we bring together people from the worlds of politics and business, as well as other opinion-formers. Most of our events are by invitation only and off the record, to ensure a high level of debate.

    The conclusions of our research and seminars are reflected in our publications, as well as in the private papers and briefings that senior officials, ministers and commissioners ask us to provide.

  • Meetings

    Meetings

    52 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
