Welcome to the Institute of European Studies project to promote dialogue about EU-Canada relations. Here you will find traditional research in the form of brief policy papers and analysis. The site is also an interface for the public to express their opinions on EU-Canada relations in general and economic and environmental cooperation in particular. The site will hopefully act as a gateway to the wider news and opinion forums that are available.

It is forbidden to talk about the European institutions. You cannot review the current policies. In no way you will make suggestions regarding the European Union budget. Thus begins a diabolic request, made by the European Council in December 2007 to a group of experts to analyze the challenges that the EU will face in 2030. The group was chaired by Felipe González, former Spanish Prime Minister, and composed of Vaira Vike-Freiberga, Mario Monti, Lech Walesa, Joschka Fischer, Jacques Delors, and André Sapir among others. Their task was formidable because, in addition to the aforementioned restrictions, the group was not endowed with funds with which to hire additional experts to research the specific areas of the report.
