11 January

From 9 to 11 January, members of the Press and Public Information Office (PPIO) of the European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (EULEX) attended the PPIO seminar for Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) Civilian Missions, which took place in in Brussels.

The three-day seminar was a great opportunity to participate in stimulating discussions on how to strengthen the Mission’s strategic communications efforts to better contribute to effective and fact-based communication, to recognize and counter disinformation, to nourish relations with the media and to promote the mandate and work of the CSDP civilian Missions on the ground.

During the seminar, the EULEX Head of Press and Public Information Officer and Spokesperson, Ioanna Lachana, shared EULEX’s extensive experience in managing strategic communications for crisis management with colleagues from different Missions.

The participants also had the opportunity to visit the European Commission’s Media Center, the heartbeat of the European Union’s external communications, and met with colleagues from the Cabinet of the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President, Josep Borrell.
