Student Think Tank for Europe-Asia Relations

STEAR

The world's first Europe-Asia Student Think Tank 

Established in 2021

The Student Think Tank for Europe-Asia Relations (STEAR) aims to strengthen relations and deepen cultural ties between the billions of people living across Europe and Asia.

Our vision is to serve as the first and leading policy institute for students and young professionals in Europe and Asia, to provide a bridge between the two continents, and to strengthen multilateral cooperation and international prosperity.

Our mission is based on three foundations: policy work; cultural exchanges; and our capacity building programme.
