ESI Communicating Europe conferences


These conferences bring together senior policy-makers, MPs and journalists from each of the states of the Western Balkans for two days of off-the-record discussions on the state of debate on future enlargement in different EU Member states. ESI prepares the seminar and also compiles a detailed manual focusing on the key "connectors" in each EU Member State; the people in Government, Parliament, media, think-tanks, academia, business and interest groups who shape the debate on EU enlargement.

The series has been funded by the Reuniting Europe strand of the Strategic Programme Fund of the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). The events are invitation-only – nominations are made by British Embassies in Southeastern Europe. ESI is responsible for the agenda and the entire project management.

Alan Grant is an Irish photographer who travelled extensively in the Balkans and other countries and regions of the world. Thanks to him, ESI is able to show fascinating pictures of the Balkans: the facades of Tirana, the painted mosques of Travnik, the fabulous old houses of Plovdiv and the spectacular blue of water - dark in the Bay of Kotor, emerald in the river valleys of Bosnia, deep blue in Ohrid, twinkling in the Aegean Sea and on the Bosporus.
