'How to research the EU: a guide for students' has just been added to our Publications page. It is available free of
charge to EIA Members and for a small cost to non-members.|
Non-members can now ask to be invoiced for publications, rather than buy and pay online.
Special offer - until the end of 2009, buy any four guides in our Starting Point, How To or Profile series and receive another one free!
We've also started revising 'European information: a guide to official sources', to reflect recent changes in the EU. The new edition will be available early next year.
Meanwhile, we've compiled a brief guide to the proposed Commission. Given that nominees must be accepted by the European Parliament, the team announced by President Barroso might change. However, on the basis of the nominations made, our guide to Barroso 2 provides a brief introduction to the proposed Commission, and lists both Commissioners-designate and the Commission's new-look Directorates-General and Services.

Press pack: Lisbon
The Treaty of Lisbon is now in force, but the questions haven't stopped. What does it say? What does it change? This 'press pack' might help provide some answers. There are links to video/audio files, photos, press releases, speeches, a guide to the Treaty, and - via some of the pages mentioned - the full text.
|The Association is not currently running any public training courses. We are, however, still able to offer in-house training, so if you and your colleagues would benefit from finding out about the EU, how it works and the documents it produces, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.|
