To start off with some good news, we’re pleased to say that we did rather well in the most comprehensive global ranking of think tanks. The “Global Go To Think Tank Index”, which examined 6545 think tanks, rated us as in the Top 10 in three categories: the best non-US think tanks; the world’s most innovative policy ideas and proposals (global); and the best use of the internet and social media in engaging the public (global). Many thanks to everyone involved, whether writing, reading, listening or responding to any of our work.
This week our prestigious ‘Reinventing Europe’ debate continued. Richard Rosecrance (Harvard University) argues that Greece and Spain are in fact essential for the eurozone as they keep the value of the currency at a competitive level. Brigid Laffan (University College Dublin) thinks that there is enough political will to save the euro and to develop a new EU with the euro at its core.
An exciting week lies ahead of us as we are getting ready to publish our European Foreign Policy Scorecard 2012 which provides a comprehensive evaluation of Europe’s performance in pursuing its interests and promoting its values in the world. Follow us on twitter @ecfrheadlines to be among the first to get your copy of the scorecard!
In the meantime, many of our experts have also joined twitter - a useful list can be found here. But we are also on Facebook and iTunes, and you can subscribe to our free email round-up of the best articles on the Middle East and North Africa.
