European Values [EV]
The European Values think tank is a non-governmental policy institute defending liberal democracy. We help to face aggressive regimes, radicalisation within the society, the spread of authoritarian tendencies and extremist ideologies including Islamism. We provide decision-makers with expert recommendations and we systematically watch and evaluate their performance. We consider active citizens, accountable politicians, political parties that fulfil their role, as well as cohesive society that shares the values of individual freedom, human dignity and equal rights to be the principle elements of a functioning liberal democracy. We publish analytical papers and commentaries for the media, organise conferences, seminars and training sessions.
