The Weekly Compass newsletter
The Weekly Compass newsletter reports the latest policy news concerning international cooperation. Focusing on the EU and its relations with countries in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific, it provides succinct updates and behind-the-scenes analysis on the foremost policy processes under way in the areas of EU external action, conflict and security, economic governance, trade and regional integration, dynamics of change in Africa, and food security.
The Filter news service
The Filter is a service providing the most relevant international cooperation news in relation to EU external action, conflict and security, economic governance, trade and regional integration, dynamics of change in Africa, and food security. With it, we scan and index more than 500 sources daily to help busy policymakers stay up to date on topics of interest to them. The Filter is the basis for our Weekly Compass newsletter. It is a searchable library, organised by topic, including commentary and analysis from our own staff to put the stories into context.
