Transatlantic Christian Council

The mission of the Transatlantic Christian Council is to develop a transatlantic public policy network of European and North American Christians and conservatives in order to promote the civic good, as understood within the Judeo-Christian tradition on which our societies are largely based. Our goal is to influence public policy on both sides of the Atlantic from a Christian and politically conservative perspective, with the broad objective of fostering and protecting the greatest achievements of our political systems: limited government, the free market and individual liberty, especially religious freedom and freedom of education, with the family as the foundational building block of society.

By bringing together Christians and conservatives involved in policy think tanks, law, business, journalism, training and education, foundations and other institutions in the public square, the Transatlantic Christian Council will function as a transatlantic actor and hub for analyzing public policies and social trends, as well as promoting and facilitating reflection and action among a wide variety of like-minded people involved in public life.
