A new set of analytical papers on topical European issues
Europe Gateway, together with the European Institute Foundation and the Center for Policy Modernization Foundation, are presenting a set of new analyses and commentaries, focusing on different topics, which are at the European agenda in this new political season.
The analytical texts are published in the "Analyses" section of the interactive website http://parliament.europe.bg, which is the key instrument of the communication project "Interacting with the European Parliament", implemented by these organizations with the financial support of the EP's DG "Communication".
The recently published analyses are provided through CEPS and EPIN - partnering organizations of the European Institute Foundation. Their authors are leading European researchers.
One of them, Julia De Clerck-Sachsse, who is a Research Fellow at CEPS, was special guest in April 2009 at the "Vox Box" discussion, organized within the "Interacting with the European Parliament" communication project.
The analyses by CEPS and EPIN members are focusing on the new EP, the EC and its immediate tasks, as well as the Lisbon Treaty ratification process, the EU rotational presidencies and the citizens' voice.
