Changing the way policy­makers across Europe talk.
The Open European Dialogue is a Politically Neutral Platform for Europe's Policymakers, focusing on Members of Parliament who value Open Exchange.

We facilitate dialogues, policy workshops, fact-finding field trips, and support policymakers who are keen to engage with different perspectives and opinions. Our network is for politicians with an interest in gaining firsthand insights into a broad range of political topics and eager to learn from the experiences of other policymakers.

Our members meet regularly to participate in multilateral and thematic activities on key political challenges, such as economic governance, digital taxation, migration and border security, measures of well-being, democratic innovation, and more.

Our Activities
The Open European Dialogue transforms the way politicians talk.

By carefully designing and facilitating regular dialogues, workshops, field trips, and informal meetings in different countries, we provide the space for policymakers to connect across borders and party lines to share perspectives and co-develop initiatives. Our different tailored formats give our members opportunities for political exchange beyond institutional structures and the rigidities of official communication and negotiation channels.

What our members say about us
These seminars are extremely useful – some of the ideas I have successfully used in shaping proposals for our national COVID-19 response.
A helpful concept that is needed in Europe today.
Parliamentarians have limited international relations. When we receive contributions from elected representatives from other countries, our ability to act at the national level increases.
It is an opportunity to have a conversation with my EU peers, away from daily politics and not too influenced by national party political lines.
One of the most intellectually stimulating discussions I have attended in a long time.
The informal meetings have provided a context in which parliamentarians can feel safe to discuss real issues and sow trust between countries and peoples.
An enriching experience for my activity as a Member of Parliament.
At the Open European Dialogue I heard excellent policy proposals along with concrete examples on how to carry them out.
Learning more about realities in different countries makes us better politicians.
The OED is a chance for me to learn from others how to be a better politician overall.
