Established in 2001, GMF’s Brussels office helps strengthen transatlantic cooperation by providing a better understanding of the implications of a more integrated Europe for the United States and the effect this has on U.S.-EU relations and NATO.
The Brussels office has become a key forum for policymakers and scholars working on U.S.-European issues. The office pursues a range of activities that include hosting outside speakers; hosting in-house Transatlantic Fellows who conduct research on important transatlantic issues; convening conferences and seminars; and coordinating signature GMF programs like the Marshall Memorial Fellowship. At a time when the U.S.-European foreign policy agenda is broadening, the Brussels office pursues programs to foster transatlantic dialogue on issues ranging from the structure a new U.S.-EU relationship, economic issues, the rise of Asia, and cooperation in the broader Middle East and Black Sea regions.
The Brussels office has established itself as an important place for dialogue and debate in the heart of Brussels. It is a conduit for presenting American perspectives on Europe and gives Americans a better sense of where the EU and NATO are heading. The office works closely with GMF’s offices in Europe and its Washington headquarters. The office’s executive director is Dr. Ian O. Lesser.
