Since 2014 the Institute has been dedicated to upholding the work of the Youth Association for a Greater Europe, founded the year prior in Paris, France. The Association has now branched out to four countries, the United Kingdom, France, Russia and Germany.

Our Association is based upon the fundamental ideas that the youth of Greater Europe aspire to work and cooperate together. To enhance this we wish to build up youth projects, organise conferences, form partnerships between private and public institutions with youth empowerment at the core and finally to give youth a platform to discuss, debate and discover other enthusiastic individuals in this Greater European Community.
Our Institute was originally founded under the name of the Greater Europe Think Tank by one of the founders of the Association, Lara Kaute, the first President of the Youth Association for a Greater Europe.
After writing many pieces and bringing together an academic community around, the Think Tank became silent for many years, before our most recent chair and vice-chair, Amand Rossum and Philippe Lefevre, brought it back.
Now we are continuing the legacy laid before us and fulfilling the values of the association, all whilst breathing new life into Greater Europe. The Think Tank has now been redesigned as the Insititute for a Greater Europe, and seeks to primarily be a platform for YAGE members to produce and debate and also create compelling and well-informed research surrounding contemporary issues that face Greater Europe today
