European Values Think-Tank is a non-governmental institution which promotes raising of political culture in the Czech Republic as well as on the European level. We provide decision-makers with expert recommendations and we watch and evaluate their work systematically. We consider active citizens, accountable politicians and a cohesive society sharing values of freedom and democracy to be the basic elements of high political culture. Since 2005, as a non-governmental and a non-profitable organisation which is not linked to any political party, we have been pursuing research and educational activities. Besides publishing analytical papers and commentaries for media, we organise conferences, seminars and trainings for both experts and public. Our events provide a platform for dialogue amongst politicians, professionals, journalists, businesspeople and students.
The Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies is the political foundation at European level of the European People’s Party and an EU think tank.The Martens Centre takes part in the preparation of EPP programmes and policy documents. It organises seminars and training on EU policies and on the process of European integration. The Martens Centre also contributes to formulating EU and national public policies. It produces research studies and books, electronic newsletters, policy briefs, and the twice-yearly European View journal. Through its papers, conferences, authors’ dinners and website, the Martens Centre offers a platform for discussion among experts, politicians, policymakers and the European public.
