European Horizons Student Group

European Horizons
at the University of Pittsburgh is Pitt’s chapter of the student-run, nonpartisan think tank, headquartered at Yale. Pitt’s chapter aims to engage students in the European debate through events and discussions, including a yearly excursion to the EU Delegation in Washington, D.C. as well as other EU member state embassies.

European Horizons is devoted to exploring the meaning of European identity, modernizing and reforming the concept of the social market economy, advancing the cause of European integration, and deepening transatlantic relations. To this end, European Horizons has established a network of students, professors, and European decision-makers, with links to academia, politics, civil society, and business. Together, we will engage in a constructive dialogue that will propound a platform of ideas for reforming the European Union and setting a policy vision for its future.

European Horizons hosts a variety of different large events and conferences throughout the year. The largest event is the annual, fully-funded European Student Conference at Yale University. Other events include the Fall Policy Convention in New York, the Youth Summit in Bruges, and the Spring Policy Forum in Washington D.C.. European Horizons spearheads research projects across the U.S. in partnership with EU institutions, publishes research and policy papers through its academic journal, The Review of European and Transatlantic Affairs, and maintains chapters across universities in the United States and Europe.

European Horizons co-sponsors the ESC and EUSA Graduate Student Conference on the EU, which will be held March 17-18, 2017 at the University of Pittsburgh.  The period for submission of proposals has ended.
