Founded as the Senior European Experts Group in 1999, the European & International Analysts Group is an independent group established in 1999 of former British officials, both civil servants and diplomats, including former officials in the EU institutions and several former UK ambassadors to the EU.

The group publishes high-quality briefing materials on issues concerning the UK’s new, external, relationship with the EU, developments in the EU itself and on broader international issues (such as foreign policy, security and trade) that affect the UK and its neighbours. The intention is to brief opinion-formers in the UK and more widely. Many journalists, politicians, academics and others from across the EU are on the mailing list. Papers drawn up by the group are sent out free of charge.

The group continues to co-sponsor seminars with higher education institutions including providing speakers and background papers, and is currently in a partnership with the Law School of City, University of London.

Further details about the members of the group can be found in the Our Members section.
