Research at IWM
Europe finds itself confronted with challenges of a magnitude it has not experienced since the crises of the 1930s. It is of the essence to create a space to understand the current dynamics and to bring people from the different corners of Europe to speak and listen to each other on the enumerated challenges. Beyond reacquiring a sense of certainty it is imperative to open the path to a future, to solutions that can make these societies prosperous again. Keen to explore some of those paths, in 2018 IWM and ERSTE Foundation (Vienna) entered a partnership to create the Europe’s Futures project as a novel resource at the intersection of academia, civil society and politics. IWM Permanent Fellow Ivan Vejvoda directs the Europe’s Futures project and its program of in-depth research leading to policy proposals, publications or direct action on topics of interest.
