“As Europeans, we are at a turning point – we must re-seize the pragmatism that was so central to the founding spirit of the Union or be swept away by the tide of history. From individuals to nations to the European institutions, we must work together to tackle our joint challenges.”

Valéry Giscard d’Estaing

Re-Imagine Europa (RIE) is a non-partisan think-tank founded by President Valéry Giscard d’Estaing as the first “incubator” for new political ideas, in honour of his partnership and friendship with Chancellor Helmut Schmidt and their efforts to define a future that goes beyond personal, national or partisan interests.

Working in collaboration with an international network of members, strategic partners and knowledge partners, RIE strives for an interdisciplinary approach to its research, aided by an in-house narrative team led by leading social psychologists.
