DRC representation in Brussels
Since February 2016, DRC has been represented in Brussels by DRC Brussels ASBL, with a highly specialized team working to strengthen our relationship with the European Union.
DRC Brussels ASBL
DRC Brussels ASBL represents DRC as a global humanitarian actor. We aim to raise institutional and public awareness on issues related to refugees and people affected by conflict and displacement through regular meetings with EU policy-makers in the European Commission, European External Action Service, Members of the European Parliament and Permanent Representations, based on first-hand knowledge from DRC country operations.
DRC Brussels plays a vital role in the support of EU funding activities, making sure DRC field operations comply with EU donor obligations.
