Formation1983

Founded in Brussels in 1983, the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) describes itself as "one of the most experienced and authoritative think tanks operating in the European Union today". CEPS serves as a leading forum for debate on EU affairs, but its most distinguishing feature lies in its strong in-house research capacity, complemented by an extensive network of partner institutes throughout the world[1].

Current activities

CEPS conduct research in a variety of areas including Economic Policy Energy and Climate Change, EU Neighbourhood Foreign and Security Policy, Financial Markets and Institutions, Justice and Home Affairs, Politics and Institutions, Regulatory Policy and Trade Developments and Policy.

The CEPS works with Madrid based think tank FRIDE on the project EU-Central Asia Monitoring (EUCAM). The project "focuses on four priority areas in order to find a mix between the broad political ambitions of the Strategy and the narrower practical priorities of EU institutions and member state assistance programmes". The four priority areas are Democracy and Human Rights, Security and Stability, Energy and Natural Resources and Education and Social Relations[2].
