"Having participated in one of the EJC seminars a year ago in Brussels and Jerusalem, I can say it was extremely useful. The main interests for international news journalists in these seminars are of course the updated exclusive information we get. Accurate sources of information are available to us in a direct way. It is a privilege to be able to meet people from a huge range of professions: politicians, NGO's representatives, think thanks, diplomats, etc. In this particular case we got the whole picture in theory. In some cases it would be interesting to meet people in their own environment so that we can feel the atmosphere is not always obvious for western journalists. In my case it was good to find out that the EU is really present in Israel with proper actions. It was also very useful to meet other journalists from fifteen European countries that have already helped me produce many television programs on the European Union."
"Get a brief description of the seminar's topic in Brussels, then review more or less theoretical thoughts in real life - on the spot! This is how the EJC seminars could be described in a few words. Seminars are undoubtedly also good opportunities to establish the contacts with journalists from the EU countries. In other words: whenever you need some detailed and quick information from the EU country you are not very familiar with, it is no problem for most of us to pick up the phone and give a call to a colleague who can usually 'solve the problem' within minutes.
