Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: We work for overcoming the long-lasting effects of the division of Europe in East and West which more or less occurred with the defeat of united European armies at Mohács in 1526. After then and the EU enlargements of 2007 and 2008 when the main "South-Eastern" countries became EU member states, the two parts of the continent had diverging evolutions.

Based on the company motto “EX ORIENTE LUX. EX OCCIDENTE LEX”, we support both Western European (esp. German) as well as South-Eastern European (esp. Romanian) companies, academic institutions and NGOs by offering political contacts for defending their legislative interests. We consult strategically and interdisciplinarily, so that they can develop long-term partnerships across borders.

Individual areas of action comprise:

1. Creating concepts of political cooperation between parties from Eastern and Western Europe on specific issues: economic and financial policy; foreign policy.

2. Intermediation of contacts between members of political parties, national parliamentarians from Romania and Germany, the EU Parliament, representatives of NGOs, research institutes.

3. Lobbying on European legislation, esp. with regard to the production and trading with organic raw materials (grains, etc.) with the Commission and the Parliament in Brussels and Strasbourg.

4. Lobbying on European legislation with selected members of the European Parliament and European Commission regarding the "Social Market Economy" model of economic and social organisation and the model of the "Dual Vocational Education and Training" system.

5. Lobbying on European legislation with selected members of Parliament regarding EU policy towards Israel, the related Middle East and related Christian Churches associations and interest groups.
