| Founded in 2004, the Thomas More Institute is an independent European think tank based in Brussels and Paris.
The Institute disseminates papers, reports, recommendations and research carried out by the best specialists to political and economic decision-makers and international media. It also organises conferences, meetings and seminars on these research areas.
The Thomas More Institute is a laboratory of ideas and innovative and practical solutions, a research centre, centre of expertise and opinion setter.
The TMI network brings together political figures, corporate managers and European experts and analysts.
The Institute's approach is based on the values defended in its Charter: freedom and responsibility, human dignity, the principles of subsidiarity and a market economy, as well as the universal values that are the common heritage of all European countries.
What we want ? A Europe:
| Why Thomas More ?
The choice of Thomas More as a symbolic reference naturally lay with the founders of the Institute.
A humanist and prominent European figure, Thomas More (1478-1535) was made a Patron Saint of politics, statesmen and politicians by Pope John-Paul II in 2000.
Throughout his life and right up until his death, he showed what it is possible to achieve with the courage of one's convictions and confidence in one's actions. His life was exemplary, a lesson, an inspiration.
To mobilise the means to achieve this ambitious project, the Thomas More Institute has assigned itself 3 concrete objectives:
The Thomas More Institute's primary goal is to influence European decision-making bodies, at both community and national levels.It achieves these aims within the strict framework of the values defended in its Charter.
The Thomas More Institute uses its expertise and European aspirations to solve complex contemporary problems. It defines itself as a privileged meeting place between three worlds that strive to work together: the public sphere, the business world and the academic world.
To lend full meaning to the principle of subsidiarity to whch it is so strongly attached and to ensure its exposure and increase its capacities of influence and information dissemination in order to weigh on on important national debates, the Thomas More Institute has a network of specialists and correspondents in several European countries.
