Together with the Hungarian Center for Euroatlantic Integration and Democracy (CEID), NEC organized a study program for the group of Ukrainian journalists from leading media outlets such as Segodnya, Liga, Ukrainian Week, Radio Svoboda, and Hromadske Radio.
Our purpose was to deepen their understanding of issues and procedures within the European Union.
The program included:
- 4 workshops with European journalists and experts in Kyiv
- 10-day study visit to Budapest, Prague, Warsaw and Bratislava
- 3-day study visit to Brussels
The result of so many days of discussion was more than 20 articles about the internal situation in these countries, their relationships with Ukraine, the impact of Russian propaganda, EU reforms, and more.
The purpose of this project is to support Ukraine’s press in communicating with the EU, to deepen its understanding of EU issues and procedures, and to have insight into internal processes in Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries.
The project was the result of cooperation with four institutional partners: Europeum Institute of European Policy in Prague, the Res Publica Foundation in Warsaw, the Slovak Foreign Policy Association in Bratislava, and the Center for Euroatlantic Integration and Democracy in Budapest, with the support of the International Visegrad Fund.
