EM Ireland has a long-standing commitment to ensuring that the information ecosystem around Europe is healthy and supports clear and accurate conversations about the EU. As part of this commitment, we are keen to support journalists, researchers, students, and anyone who plays a role in how people in Ireland receive content around Europe.

The EU and its institutions can be complicated. Political developments in other Member States can have an unexpected impact. Some topics may have crucial nuances that may not be obvious.

In advance of the European Elections, our goal is to provide advice, fact-checking, and resources to anyone writing about the EU, to ensure that Irish discourse around Europe is accurate and trustworthy.
