Covering the Eastern Partnership Summit

20 May - 22 May 2015, Riga, Latvia (DG NEAR 2015)


15 journalists from the EU-28 are invited to join a three-day seminar covering the Eastern Partnership (EaP) Summit that will take place on 20-22 May 2015 in Riga, Latvia. The Riga Summit is one of the key political events this year marking the European Union?s engagement with the Eastern Partnership countries. It will gather high-level European Union representatives, Heads of States and Governments from EU Member States and EaP countries.

The EaP Summit will provide an opportunity to evaluate the progress achieved in relations between the EU and the Eastern Partners since the last Summit in Vilnius, and to identify and begin to formulate new strategic guidance on further steps to be taken.

Organised on behalf of the Directorate-General for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations, this media seminar will provide an opportunity for the selected journalists to attend the press conference of the Summit, follow the side events organised alongside the Summit (the Media Conference; the Civil Society Conference, & the Business Forum), and discuss developments of the EaP beyond Riga.

Journalists specialised in foreign affairs, in particular covering the Eastern neighbourhood of the EU, will be given priority in selection.

Travel, accommodation and some meals will be covered by the organisers.
