The European and International Affairs Unit is Styria's voice as well as its eyes and ears in the EU. We represent Styrian interests in European politics, communicate EU matters to Styrian stakeholders and the public, and we advise on EU issues. We co-ordinate the active foreign and neighbourhood policy of Styria with numerous partner regions worldwide and the network of Styrians living abroad; we also organise the development co-operation activities of the State of Styria.
Welcome to the Unit for European and International Affairs
We take part in shaping Europe by representing Styrian interests in the EU and consulting policy-makers, administrative bodies and citizens. The European Union is not something that happens in Brussels; it happens on our doorstep. This is why we talk about Europe in Styria and with the people living in Styria. Active foreign and neighbourhood policy is indispensable for regions such as Styria that have an international focus. Styria lives up to its global responsibility and plays an active part in development policy.
