The third segment covers the area consulting and opinion making. Our services include the development of dossiers and country studies, academic advice as well as the organisation of symposia.
Furthermore we offer policy advice in a succinct format. Sebastian Schäffer and Michael Bauer are editors of a policy paper series (C·A·Perspectives), dealing with current challenges and developments in international politics that affect Europe and the European Union. Our experts publish regularly in academic journals and book contributions in their area of expertise. The members of our network moreover hold specialised lectures and have given expert opinions in several media interviews.
Our experts work independently and non-partisan. In our work, we respect the rules of academic rigour and respect the codex for academic consulting. In times when decisions within the political process are often marked without alternative and too complex, we aspire to elaborate alternatives and make decision-making processes understandable.
