Goals / Remit

Established 1983 in Boston, Mentor Group is a publicly supported research institute that founded a distinctive constitutional, legal-economic and political-economic exchange following the classical definition of political economy that applies the principles of justice to economic and business affairs. Mentor Group’s work had been motivated by lack of understanding in the United States about the European Union and by misapprehension in Europe about the origins of the United States political economy. Toward this end, Mentor established the Forum for EU-US Legal-Economic Affairs in 1989. This peer group of EU and US Supreme Court Justices, European Union Commissioners and their US counterparts, and corporate Chief Legal Officers meets twice annually in Europe to discuss concrete legal-economic developments between the European Union and the United States. Collective findings inform members’ autonomous decisions in the future.


Cutting across jurisdictions and sectors, the Forum for EU-US Legal-Economic Affairs covers EU and US competition law enforcement and judicial control; data protection, privacy and security; European industrial policy and innovation; big data, emerging technologies and artificial intelligence; fundamental rights and economic freedoms; market dependence on courts’ judgments; EU due process protections; corporate responsibility, FCPA and global anti-corruption policy; global statecraft, security and trade cooperation.
