We assist governments, public institutions, embassies and political NGOs communicate their points of view to the European Union and related third party stakeholders.
Under the Lisbon Treaty the EU considerably expanded its foreign policy powers. This means that decisions regarding aid and foreign investment, access to markets and international diplomacy are increasingly being taken in Brussels.
Stakeholders must also acknowledge and respond to the European Parliament’s increasing influence and scrutiny of EU trade deals and other international agreements.
Governments and related organisations need to be able to adapt their communications strategies to this new political environment. Our expertise covers a variety of issues, including promoting political and diplomatic agendas, boosting foreign investment and improving dialogue on reputational issues. By understanding the diverse political interests at both EU and national level we are able assist clients in structuring their communications activities to address this increasingly complex foreign policy landscape.
