Bush School students Lexia Arther, Miguel Eusse, Julie Thompson, and Chloe Verschuren, with the support of their faculty advisor, Dr. Gabriela Marin Thornton, have launched the Texas A&M chapter of European Horizons (EH), a national organization seeing to foster discourse in the United States on the future of Europe.
European Horizons is a US-based, non-partisan think tank devoted to exploring European identity, modernizing and reforming the concept of the social market economy, advancing the cause of European integration, and deepening transatlantic relations. To meet these ambitious goals, European Horizons has established a network of students, professors, business leaders, and European decision-makers in hopes of raising awareness about Europe in the US and fostering policy debates on the future of Europe.
The organization sponsors an annual European Student Conference at Yale University, hosts a Fall Policy Convention, and publishes research and policy papers through its academic journal, The Review of European and Transatlantic Affairs. The Texas A&M EH chapter will join other chapters – Harvard, Cornell, Columbia, Stanford, and other universities – in a constructive dialogue that will put forward a platform of ideas for reforming the European Union and setting a policy vision for its future.
Dr. Thornton noted that creation of the Texas A&M EH chapter by Bush School students will help all Texas A&M students understand European issues more fully, and also provide opportunities for networking with fellow students at peer institutions around the nation. All A&M students undergraduate and graduate are invited to join.
