On 17 January 2019, Piret Kuusik from the EFPI/ICDS joined a panel with Josef Janning from the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR).
Mr Janning visited Tallinn to introduce ECFR EU Coalition Explorer. Since 2015, the ECFR has surveyed civil servants, think-tankers and other officials working with European policy from the 28 EU member states. The Explorer creates a visual understanding of the views held by European political classes. The Explorer can be used to locate the political centre- centres– to build a more capable and cohesive European Union. The succeeding discussion touched upon Estonia’s role in the EU, the Nordic-Baltic region, the future of the EU and Franco-German axis.
