Here we are, counting 100 editions of our bulletin and 10 years of an incredible GEAB adventure.
Let me tell you this story:
The GEAB was born in January, 2006, out of a fierce desire of independence for our think-tank, LEAP : an intellectual independence, essential to the relevance of our work on European democratization and on Europe’s global place and role, requiring financial independence. Until 2005, the traffic of our websites was telling us with what interest our work was being followed.
