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

Special Session on Europe and China


In November, the Club of Three brought together 45 senior representatives from France, Germany, the UK and China to discuss how best to manage relations between Europe and China in the aftermath of the Ukraine crisis, the 2022 quinquennial Communist Party Congress and appointment of a ‘refreshed’ Chinese leadership team, and amid continuing tensions between China and the United States. The meeting took place in Berlin.
