Parliament adopted a non-binding report on the EU's information and communication strategy with 398 votes in favour, 54 against and 55 abstentions. (Please refer to the summary dated 21/04/2005).

In addition to the summary concerning the committee’s decision on this report, Parliament believes that there is also a need to find a formula that will make it possible to involve regional and local media more closely in information and communication policy. The Commission is called upon to hold an "ideas competition" which would enable original proposals to be brought together on the best ways of putting the European message across.

Parliament is of the opinion that greater financial resources should be allocated to Eurobarometer, to enable it to compile much fuller and more rigorous reports.

Lastly, Parliament notes that the Prince Programme has traditionally been based on partnership between the Commission and the Member States. It stresses the need for parliamentary involvement in the determination of Prince priorities and believes that MEPs should be fully involved in events organised under the aegis of the Prince Programme. It welcomes the Commission's suggestion that the programming and monitoring of Prince be adapted to more accurately reflect Parliament's term.

The committee adopted the report by Luis Francisco HERRERO-TEJEDOR ALGAR (EPP-ED, ES) on the EU's information and communication strategy.

MEPs stressed that the object of this strategy should primarily be to keep the Union's citizens continually and properly informed about the functioning of the EU institutions in order to develop their knowledge, concern and participation in EU affairs and bring them closer to the Union . They said that greater attention should be paid to the content of the messages put out, so as to stimulate the interest of citizens by tackling their concerns. A decentralised information system should be established to make it easier to reach specific groups which should be targeted with individually tailored messages in all cases.

The committee was convinced that information and communication policy would not be effective until knowledge of the EU and its institutions was included as a subject in the Member States' school curricula. Universities should also be called upon to be proactive in spreading and fostering common European values. The report stressed the importance of making greater use of communications media with the technological capacity to reach the homes of all European citizens, such as television, radio and the Internet.

The EU should also create a centre of excellence for communication within which there would be structured cooperation amongst all the EU institutions and which would provide scope for working with professionals and experts in the communication sector. The committee stressed the need for the institutions to improve their press releases and the quality of all information intended for the press, in order to facilitate the work of all professional journalists closely following events in Brussels . It also called for the institutions' press releases to be prepared as far as possible by professional communications experts.

MEPs said that some of the information resources should be devoted to promoting the European 'brand' and that in the next few years pilot schemes should be introduced with a view to making certain programmes (i.e. Media , Youth , Culture or Education ) more appealing to the general public and promoting the positive 'image' of the Union. They therefore welcomed the organisation of a European Youth Week with activity days under the banner 'Young People in Parliament', which would strengthen young people's links with Europe .

With regard to the European Constitution, the committee stressed that the campaign of information and communication should become the main priority in the Union 's information and communication strategy over the near future. This priority should be approached from a dual perspective:

- the EU's institutions have a duty to inform citizens clearly and objectively about the content of the Constitution and the meaning of the changes it introduces as compared to the current Treaties;

- in addition, Parliament, the Council and the Commission have the political responsibility to support the ratification of the Constitution, always acting in agreement with Member States and taking into account the relevant national legislation.

As to Parliament's own information strategy, the committee welcomed the decision of the EP Bureau to commission a feasibility study on the possible establishment of a parliamentary information channel or genuine EP television channel. It recognised that there were a range of different options for such a project and said that any channel should be independent. Such a channel could make a significant contribution to the development of a European public space. The committee also noted that, on earlier occasions, it had requested the Commission to launch an in-house impact study on such a European channel. Finally, the report stressed the need for greater synergy between the activities of Parliament's external offices and those of the Commission's representations.

The Council has adopted conclusions on the information and communication strategy for the European Union. It agrees on the necessity to regularly update the selected information topics and the underpinning communication strategies in line with the information needs of citizens as identified, inter alia, in opinion polls and surveys. It underlines, in the context of the "Future of Europe" priority topic, the need for Member States and Institutions to deploy major efforts to ensure that European citizens are well-informed about the future Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe. Council invites Member States and the Commission to implement special communication actions aimed at addressing the information needs of all schools students. The Council considers that the objectives and content of campaigns on "Enlargement" should be redefined and adapted in the light of the accession of the ten new Member States. It stresses the need to put greater emphasis on the "Area of Freedom, Security and Justice" by increasing budgetary allocations and by undertaking joint information initiatives on aspects of particular relevance to citizens like the fight against crime and terrorism.

Great importance is attached to the "Role of Europe in the World", including the need to inform citizens on ESDP, especially in connection with the missions being carried out under that policy; calls for interested Member States and Institutions to consider co-ordinated activities in this regard in the forthcoming years. It urges strongly that budgetary allocations and personnel resources for priority topics under the PRINCE programme should be consistent with the communication challenges ahead, at both institutional and local level. The need need to facilitate effective co-operation between Member States and the Commission's Representations in the Member States is underlined.

Moreover, it recommends the future regrouping of the PRINCE budget in a single budget line in

order to make the best use of available funds. It shares the Commission's view that PRINCE should continue to be based on partnership between Commission and Member States. "Strategic partnerships" are considered to be the most practicable option for implementation and invites interested Member States to define and carry out joint communication plans whose measures are financed separately but complementarily by Member States and the Commission.

Concerning the information relays and networks, the Council notes their extremely pro-active role as multipliers of information and considers them to be crucial suppliers of information to the general public and wishes to preserve their valuable experience and know-how. The need to create a stable legal framework which guarantees funding of networks from 2005 onwards and their operability, thus preventing any interruption in the flow of information provided to the public was agreed.

The Council reiterates the key-role of the Interinstitutional Group on Information (IGI) in laying

down guidelines for EU communication and information activities, selecting the priorities for future initiatives and making suggestions for the conduct and financing of the major information campaigns. Lastly, it stresses the need to implement the EU communication and information strategy in

conformity with the IGI orientations.

PURPOSE : to present a Commission communication on implementing the information and communication strategy for the European Union.

CONTENT : this Commission communication concerns the implementation and communication strategy for the European Union. If the EU's information and communication strategy adopted on 2 July 2002 is to succeed it must be adopted at the highest policy-making level and must itself be based on the institution's policy priorities. The forthcoming years must be used to consolidate the achievements of the EU's information and communication strategy since July 2002. The enlargement of the EU only enhances the importance of the concepts of partnership and decentralisation that underlie this strategy.

Its successful implementation will depend on the tasks the Commission sets itself and the Member States in this growing field of communication and on the resources that are available.

In the case of the Commission, the initiating, coordinating and planning role of the central administration must be enhanced, but at the same time the tasks of the representations must be defined in a way that is more in keeping with their resources.

The cohesiveness of the strategy will also require better coordination of the Commission's own resources as regards both its means of communication and its internal communication culture

From now on, these objectives should be implemented in a new context characterised by the necessary adjustment of the resources available with a view to the Union's enlargement.

In accordance with its institutional prerogatives, the Commission will have to face this new situation with staff numbers unchanged for its headquarters and particularly limited human resources for the establishment of 10 new representations. Thus, 2005 will be the first year in which the information and communication strategy will apply in full in EU-25.

The Commission believes that the principal objective is "to improve perception of the European Union and its Institutions and their legitimacy by deepening knowledge and understanding of its tasks, structure and achievements and by establishing a dialogue with its citizens". This includes in particular raising the quality of European public debate, associating the public in European decision-making, listening to the public and their concerns more attentively, and the methodical, consistent rebuilding of the EU's image.

As stated in its communication of 2 July 2002, the Commission has so far concentrated on four defined priority information topics: enlargement, the future of the Union, the area of freedom, security and justice, and the euro. It has also obtained Parliament's and the Council's agreement for a fifth PRINCE topic in 2004 – the role of Europe in the world – the more fully to meet the concerns of the Union's citizens.

The fact that various significant events will be taking place in 2004 makes it absolutely essential to update the strategies underlying the different priority information topics mentioned. In the first place this concerns enlargement. This communication strategy must be pursued beyond the decisive date of 1 May 2004; it should not be confined to simply explaining the arrival of ten new Member States but should also cover the ongoing negotiations with the other candidate countries and the further dimension of the new neighbourhood policy. This involves educating the public about a continuing process of drawing the frontiers of tomorrow's Union. The guidelines laid down by the Commission in its communication of 10 May 2000 are still the appropriate reference.

A review is even more warranted where the future of the Union is concerned. The negotiations at the Intergovernmental Conference are still going on, and the new strategy to be implemented with regard to the new constitutional treaty will therefore have to take account of the European elections and, in particular, of the new timetable for future negotiations.

Beyond 2004, which is a transitional year, it is also essential to think about the relevance of other topics, which may, with an eye to consistency, correspond more fully to the Commission's policy priorities.

Apart from updating current topics, the timetable for 2004 will also provide an opportunity

for preparing, for 2005, a better match between the strategic priorities of the new Commission, set out each year in the Annual Policy Strategy decision, and the various priority information topics. Full account will also have to be taken of the fresh priorities identified in the new financial perspective.

The Commission is of the opinion that the enlargement of the EU will have to be flanked by a greater degree of interinstitutional cooperation, based on better programming and a more structured redefinition of the various priority information topics for 2005 and subsequent years. The programming will also have to be multiannual. It could, for instance, cover a four- to five-year period (2005-2009), accompanied by annual monitoring and mid-term review, based on impact indicators yet to be defined, the more accurately to reflect Parliament's term and the Commission's mandate.

The Commission deals with the issue of the means available to the Commission which are both centralised and dispersed. Meeting the challenge of developing information and communication strategy in the context of EU-25 requires not only the adaptation and extension of all means to this new horizon (partnerships proposed with the Member States as well as with their local and regional bodies, relays and networks, various audiovisual tools, multimedia and surveys), as well as the provision of sufficient resources both at headquarters and in the 25 representations.
