Bringing Europe's Leaders Together

Club of Three

Our mission

The Club of Three is a Franco-German-British leadership initiative which aims to:

  • Encourage the exchange of new ideas at the highest level on how to tackle the greatest threats and challenges of our time
  • Enhance dialogue between senior figures from business, politics, the media and academia in France, Germany and the UK
  • Strengthen the relationships between “the Three” and with other European and international partners outside of official communication channels
  • Generate strategic thinking on Europe’s future following the British referendum decision for the UK to leave the European Union

Club of Three/LSE Ideas Webinar

Europe and the Indo-Pacific in the Biden Presidency – What security and defence implications for us Europeans?


On 28 January, the Club of Three held a webinar on security in the Indo-Pacific region in partnership with LSE IDEAS, with Sir John Sawers, May-Britt Stumbaum and François Heisbourg as main speakers. The discussion explored what France, Germany and the UK, as well as other European nations, could do in this region to meet the growing challenge from China – and how they should best work together and with the United States.
