The New Parliament Edition
EP Boot Camp
18 October 2019 from
09:30 to 16:00.
There is a new European Parliament – and it is a changed Parliament. Even if you felt that you knew the old one, we are faced with a remarkably different European Parliament. More than 60% of Members of the European Parliament are new and the balance of power has changed drastically. Old coalitions and alliances no longer have the strength they used to have, and behind the scenes, the power structures are changing. It is truly a new European Parliament, with new challenges and perspectives.
Want to understand how the new European Parliament really works? From changes in the balance of power and complicated committee procedures to the hearings of the new Commissioners - navigating the maze of the European Parliament was never easy.
Add to this the Brexit question and how this will impact the European Parliament – from the size of the political groups, to a change in overall political direction.
In October the European Parliament will hold hearings and vote on whether or not to accept the new European Commission – but some MEPs have considerably more influence on the outcome than others. We will walk you through the process of which MEPs decide and which of them know the decisions before anyone else.
Euraffex #EPBootCamp is a one-day intensive seminar focusing on how the European Parliament really works. From Quaestors and Coordinators to Committee procedures and Commissioner hearings, our #EPBootCamp explains it all.
