A permanent inter-university research and education centre, the institute encourages continuous reflection, conducts studies and carries out activities in the area of regional development. It pursues its objectives by paying attention to European and work issues and their impact on the whole of society.
The Destrée Institute’s flagship activity is Millennia 2015 “Women actors of development for the global challenges”, which promotes the recognition of women’s role in society. It is a process of forward-looking research based on three international conferences:
“Information transfer” at Liège in 2008; “Knowledge processes”
at UNESCO, Paris, in 2011; and “Intelligence platforms”
at the United Nations, New York, in 2015.
