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’s Emerging Approach to the Indo-Pacific: with US Leadership?


On 21 April, the Club of Three held a second webinar on the issue of security in the Indo-Pacific in partnership with LSE IDEAS. This session was chaired by Leslie Vinjamuri with Kori Schake, Tobias Ellwood MP, and Franziska Brantner MdB, as main speakers.

The discussion focused on the transatlantic dimension of the tilt to the Indo-Pacific, particularly what Europe and the US expected of each other in efforts to provide greater stability to this region.
