Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations - NGO meetings on the crisis in Libya, between 20 June 2016 to 25 July 2017

The request was partially successful.

Dear Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

For the period between 20 June 2016 to 25 July 2017:
- a list of all meetings, regarding the crisis in Libya and its neighbourhood (including its migration, humanitarian and Mediterranean search & rescue aspects) held by the Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations with NGOs. The list should include: date, individuals attending and organisational affiliation, as well as the issues discussed;
- all minutes and other reports of these meetings;
- all correspondence, including attachments (i.e. any emails, correspondence or telephone call notes) regarding these encounters. An example would be the invitation to attend these meetings/events or any follow-up correspondence; and
- all documents prepared for the purpose of the meeting and/or exchanged during the course of the meeting. An example would be the programmes for those events, lists of attendees, or any documents NGOs might have prepared and distributed to attendees.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any doubts or question in regards to this application.

Thank you in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Atak,

 

Thank you for your e-mail dated 20 March 2020. We hereby acknowledge
receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered

You have lodged your application via the AsktheEU.org website. Please note
that this is a private third-party website which has no link with any
institution of the European Union. Therefore, the European Commission

the use of this system.

 

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data
