What is In.Europa?

1.
Do tank, not think tank

We want to select the topics of most importance for Europe and successfully introduce them into the public debate, we do not want to produce new reports legible only to a limited group of experts.

2.
Civic perspective

We want to deal with areas of life wherein the Union brings tangible benefits to its citizens, we do not want to see the Union in isolation from the reality surrounding us.

3.
Pro-european attitude

We believe in the European project and in the ways that have been beneficial to Poland and the Poles, we do not want force ourselves to represent phony objectivism.

 

4.
Smart organization

A small, flexible team, boldly facing the challenges with the support of experienced colleagues can achieve more, we do not need to immediately create a big office with dozens of employees.

5.
Design attitude

We intend to develop by analyzing specific issues pertaining to the Union, we do not want to deal exclusively with grand ideas — though we also believe in them.

State Power Index

 

We created a state power index to show two phenomena: how Poland’s position has changed on the international arena since 1989 and what the potential power of the European Union can be. As we face growing uncertainty in the world and a risk of a reshuffle of the global order, it is worth seeking to have the EU play a greater international role than today. This is especially the case because of Europe’s numerous external and internal threats and the alternative to integration are uncontrolled and unpredictable developments in the world.

 

Together means stronger

Individual EU countries by themselves are not able to equal the largest actors on the global political scene. Together, however, they can achieve more than in the most ambitious dreams of the Union’s founding fathers.

Pillar of the international order

State power index shows that the EU may become the main pillar of the international order. What becomes apparent is that those who stand in place are moving backwards — because of different types of international conditions, the strategic window for the development of the EU has just opened.
