First Europe-wide policy journal launched

Last week, Europe's World, the only Europe-wide policy journal, was launched. The journal, planned to appear three times a year, is an initiative of the Brussels-based think tank for policy analysis and debate Friends of Europe. According to the journal's website, Friends of Europe is "independent of EU institutions and without national or political bias". 45 other think tanks from across Europe are involved in the journal on an advisory board (see website for complete list).

Editor Giles Merritt said, "Europe suffers from the lack of a coherent policy debate involving all the national opinion-formers. Europe?s World sets out in modest fashion to address this problem." Europe's World is also an attempt to create a counterweight to US journal Foreign Affairs. The first issue contains prominent contributers, such as the former Swedish prime minister Carl Bildt or former Polish minister Bronislaw Geremek, states Le Soir. The issue can be accessed freely on its website.
