The Institute of European Affairs was founded in 1991 as a self-governing body. The Institute is a registered, independent charity, and is independent of all political, economic and social interests. The Institute represents no sectoral viewpoint and expresses no corporate views of its own. Views expressed in the Institute's publications and at its conferences, seminars and briefings are those of the authors and speakers.
