Welcome to the European Strategic Institute

The world is changing and geopolitical volatility continues unabated.

Globalization, digitization, climate change, demographic change, migration and refugee flows, numerous crises and conflicts – to name only a few of the most important trends – lead to a number of manifest and difficult to calculate risks and a variety of hazards. These pose major challenges for decision-makers worldwide. Information has become the all-important resource to protect democracy, the rule of law and economic prosperity against threats and instability.

The European Strategic Institute provides exactly the information you need to make the right business decisions in a globalized and increasingly complex world. It supports you with exclusive information on all national and international economic areas and provides individually tailored orientation and decision-making aids. The Institute also gives you access to an international network of experts working in key positions at renowned international organizations and universities. The institute’s geostrategic and geopolitical case studies and analyzes allow internationally active companies to gain insight into current and future developments in the international economy, finance, politics and diplomacy, thus contributing to securing strategic corporate planning or making concrete investment decisions.

The European Strategic Institute sees itself as a politically independent platform for a deeper dialogue between entrepreneurs, managers, politicians, strategists and scientists. In addition, it is committed to improving the level of knowledge about economic issues and is committed to a more active role of Germany and Europe in shaping the international geoeconomy.

The European Strategic Institute was founded in 2004 by several family entrepreneurs and partners in Hamburg, is supported by an International Advisory Committee and cooperates with well-known international institutions.
