Since its establishment a central focus of the Federal Trust’s work has been on European studies, ranging from Britain's relationship to Europe, to promoting democracy and effectiveness in the European Communities and now the European Union. The projects the Trust undertakes fulfil two basic aims: to conduct research on the European dimension of government and to enhance the debate on European integration.
The Trust’s activities to further both its research and informative work include wider programmes of work as well as specific projects which contribute to the Trust's wider objectives. The Federal Trust regularly undertakes research by convening working groups comprised of policy experts who are examining the specific issues of the EU today.
