The International Press Association (IPA) is holding an “extraordinary general meeting” today in Brussels.
The meeting, entitled ‘What does the future hold for Brussels-based journalists?’, will address the steep decline in the number of EU accredited journalists working in Brussels.
Media organisations are increasingly downsizing, cost cutting and closing their operations in the capital of Europe (…) What are the consequences of these phenomena for Brussels-based media, and, more importantly, for informed reporting of the EU?
Accredited journalists based in Brussels and members of the association are invited to discuss the following issues:
Communication and information policies of the European institutions and in particular the Commission
Conditions regarding work and residence of journalists based in Brussels
Improvement of contacts and collaboration at the heart of the press corps based in Brussels.
