Welcome to a new summer episode of EU Watchdog Radio. In this episode we will very exceptionally… talk about ourselves, about CEO as a lobby watchdog and dive into how it all started 25 years ago!

This year, CEO celebrates its 25th anniversary, albeit in a modest way as at the start of this year the pandemic was still raging, and soon after a war started on the European continent with a subsequent energy and food crisis. Not exactly a festive set of circumstances.

While discussing the history of CEO, we also discuss parts of the political and economic history of the European Union as we know it today. And we sincerely hope that by listening to co-founders and still researchers with CEO, Olivier Hoedeman and Belen Balanya, who explain how it all began back in Amsterdam, you’ll understand why the EU functions as it does today.

Get ready for a trip down memory lane!
