European student think tank

The European Student Think Tank (abbreviated EST) is an International NGO dedicated to involving young Europeans in the European policy-making process[when?]. It functions as an online journal of international affairs and annually publishes an academic journal, "The European Policy Review".[1]


The European Student Think Tank won the 2011 European Charlemagne Youth Prize,[2] awarded by the European Parliament, and has since then expanded to host a network of ambassadors in Council of Europe member states.


The European Student Think Tank currently hosts debates across EU institutions in which young people engage with policy-makers, having hosted in 2016 debates in the European Parliament on gender equality and youth participation in European Politics.[3] Members of the European Parliament and representatives of the European Commission participated in these debates, as well as academics. European Student Think Tank President Carlota Nunez Strutt was a panelist in the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats Europe Together conference, in which other speakers included European Parliament President Martin Schulz and vice-president of the European Commission Federica Mogherini.[4]
