Foundations and think tanks consult Jacqueline Hénard for projects with an international angle and a European dimension. She sets up new programs on economic strategies, collective identity in the age of globalization, and managing diversity.
La Fabrique de l’industrie, a think tank founded by Louis Gallois, turned to her in 2012 in order to promote better understanding of Germany's economic success. In 2010, she joined the European Council on Foreign Relations as a Senior Policy Associate to contribute to the program "Germany in Europe". For many years, she has participated in the works of Institut Montaigne, a Parisian think tank funded by 90 private companies and dedicated to shaping public policy with a view to improving both the economic and social environment in France.
