European Values Network (EVN) is a platform open to all who believe that, in order to successfully address global challenges, the European Union should become a real political community consciously rooted in its values and cultural heritage. Inspired by the values of freedom, personal responsibility, and an active civil society, the European Values Network promotes more democratic contestation within the EU, a competitive European economy, closer and stronger transatlantic ties, mutually beneficial strategic relations with our neighbouring countries, and a responsible policy towards migration.
European Values Network stands for:
EVN assembles young European scholars and professionals who formulate alternative solutions to make Europe freer, safer and more prosperous. It operates via working-groups on the most urgent policy issues. It arranges workshop-meetings, Internet-based communication and conferences. The EVN publishes recommendations addressed to EU policy-makers. It was founded by European Values – a non-profit think tank based in Prague – and is administrated by an International Organizing Committee.
