Development cooperation in fragile situations

12 March - 13 March 2013, Brussels (DEVCO 2013)


Supporting countries' efforts to prevent fragility, to address its root causes and to tackle its consequences is an integral part of EU development and cooperation policy. More must be done to enable a comprehensive response to situations of fragility, ensuring synergies and good articulation between institutional, state and non-state actors.

To raise awareness about these issues, the European Journalism Centre and the European Commission Directorate General for Development and Cooperation will organise a two-day briefing in Brussels on 12 and 13 March 2013.
The event will feature panel discussions, on and off the record talks with senior members of the EU institutions, experts from international organisations, think-tank and academic communities in Brussels as well as speakers from the field.
Participating journalists will have the opportunity for an exclusive meeting with Andris PIEBALGS, EU Commissioner for Development.

Please note that specialised reporters, with a proven track record in publishing articles about development and foreign affairs, will be given priority.

The organisers will cover travel, accommodation and most meals.

Please note that participants are expected to arrive on 11 March. Departure time is planned for 14 March.

This seminar is organised with financial and organisational support from the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Development and Cooperation – EuropeAid.
