London dinners

The European League for Economic Cooperation (ELEC) organizes a few times a year discussion dinners in London. The aim is to have an open debate on economic and financial topics concerning the European Union and the UK attitude towards the EU. Participants come mostly from economic and financial circles and have a keen interest for EU affairs. The discussions are confidential ("Chatham House Rule"). The maximum number of participants is limited to 20.

As an independent network of intellectuals that has no links to political parties or national interests or to any other pressure group, ELEC proposes to offer a forum for creative thinking and open discussion on European issues. Having no member section in the UK – Britain was one of the founders of ELEC in 1946 but the UK section closed in 2005 – the London dinners aim at becoming, under ELEC auspices, a catalyst for those in Britain who are interested in the European integration project.
