The leaders of the seven think tanks and foundations that are involved in the Vision Europe initiative have addressed an open letter to the President of the European Council, the President of the European Commission and to the Prime Ministers of the 28 EU member states to stress the need to act in unity at the European level as a matter of urgency.

The Jacques Delors Institute takes part to the Vision Europe project, a consortium of think tanks and foundations collaborating to address some of the most pressing public policy challenges facing Europe. Through research, publications and an annual summit, we aim to be a forum for debate and a source of recommendations to improve evidence-based policy-making at both a national and EU level and to foster as appropriate European integration. In 2015 we commonly worked on "The Future of the Welfare State"; for the year 2016, the Vision Europe initiative will developing innovative policy recommendations on how to improve the response to the crisis of migrants and refugees in Europe.
