Our Europe — CASE Strategy for the biennium 2019-2020. The mission Our Europe means promoting the understanding of the value (but also the limits) of an economically and institutionally-integrated Europe, and, in particular, the membership of Poland and other CEECs in the EU, and providing high quality evidence and advice in support of better future EU policy making. The debate on the future of the EU gets increasingly political and evidence is often either not provided or swept under the carpet. The CASE mission statement builds on working closely with European stakeholders and providing evidence on European policy issues, and it connects these activities to our local mission of promoting good economic policy in Poland and the CEECs.
