Main EU initiatives covered the year before by activities falling under the scope of the Transparency Register:

The CEPR organises delegations of European parliamentarians and policy-makers to visit the Occupied Palestinian Territories and neighbouring countries which host Palestinian refugees. This enables delegates to witness at first-hand the situation confronting Palestinians and to gather information so that they can pursue policy changes from an informed and evidence-based perspective.
The CEPR is funded by individual donations from around the world in compliance with Belgian and UK legal requirements. It does not accept funds from any individuals or bodies whose objectives are inimical to the interests of peace and justice.
We have organised delegations to The West Bank; Israel; Gaza; Syria; Lebanon; Egypt; Tunisia; and Qatar. The purpose is to engage politicians with the issues on the ground or to arrange high level meetings with European and Middle Eastern leaders to further the aims of CEPR.
