EUBAM raised awareness of the positive aspects of the European Union

        Both in April and May, the Mission contributed to activities that helped raise awareness of the European Union and its positive aspects.
        Throughout April, as part of the long-standing cooperation with the Odesa National Mechnikov University, EUBAM delivered three lectures within a unique course aimed at increasing awareness of functioning of the EU agencies and modern border management, including the context of the EU-UA Solidarity Lanes initiative. The students of the International Relations Faculty learned about the EUBAM activities and its mandate, Schengen acquis, Integrated Border Management Concept, and the role of Border Guard/Border Police and Customs in ensuring the border security and facilitating border crossing for legitimate trade and travelers.

        On May 13, EUBAM participated in an event dedicated to Europe Day and Europe in Chisinau, the capital of Moldova. In addition to various projects related to the European Union, embassies, civil society and others were also represented on site. For the experts of the Mission, it was an opportunity to talk with the locals about EUBAM and the European Union in general.
