Just the Facts

EM Ireland’s Just the Facts information briefings are factual, jargon-free information bulletins that are designed to bring you up-to-speed on key national and international issues.  First launched as part of our information work for the Fiscal Treaty in 2012, the Just the Facts series has broadened its remit to cover Europe-wide political developments such as national elections, meetings of the European Council, major developments in EU affairs and items of a particular Irish interest. In 2016, EM Ireland launched ‘All EU Need To Know’ explainers, which are a branch of the Just The Facts series.
