Réalité-EU describes itself as "a website and e-newsletter for journalists, leaders and key analysts that focus on developments in and around the Middle East which pose a threat to Europe and beyond."
The group's website domain was registered in mid-December 2006.
On its website, Realite-EU states that "Realite-EU is supported by individuals concerned with the growing threat of Iran and extremism in Europe and the Middle East" and that it "will provide the latest thinking on breaking news and long-term trends on these and other issues as well as give reporters lists of experts to interview."
In an undated press release, then-staffer Simon Barrett explained that "Réalité-EU is affiliated with International Media Intelligence Analysis (IMIA). IMIA, like this new e-publication Réalité-EU is an organisation of global reach that exposes threats from state sponsors of terrorism, terrorist financing, nuclear proliferation, suppression of human rights, and related issues."
IMIA was dissolved on April 14th 2009 and therefore Realite-EU is no longer affiliated with IMIA.
On its website, Realite-EU states that it is a "non-profit organization not connected to any government. REALITE-EU is supported by individuals concerned with the growing threat of Iran and extremism in Europe and the Middle East." However, it provides no details of its office bearers, funders or annual reports.
