Forgotten?

Welcome to The Centre

The Centre is Edelman Brussels’ forum for debate, allowing people engaged in shaping Europe’s development to share ideas and views. It is both an incubator of ideas – hosting seminars, round tables, book launches, debates and a range of social events; and an instigator of ideas – collaborating with think tanks, foundations and other thinking communities globally to provide a different perspective and revitalise debate on the major issues of the day.

Why European Populists Support Putin’s Russia And What This Means for Democracy in Europe

03 Dec 2014

The surge of radical, populist and Eurosceptic forces in the last European elections came on the heels of the EU’s active involvement in the Ukraine crisis, the biggest test of its capacity and seriousness as a foreign policy actor to date.
