My work

The work of us MEPs is divided into work in the European Parliament and work at home; I like to call this work ‘work on the field’ among people.

The work in the European Parliament takes place within the work of Committees (where we discuss legislative proposals submitted to us by the European Commission). Sometimes the work is also divided into subcommittees and interest groups dealing with specific issues, discussions in a political group, discussion in the form of trialogues, debate and vote in Plenary. At the same time, I can put forward three questions to the Commission and the Council of Ministers per month.

In addition to committee and political group meetings, we have many other meetings and events. I am also a member of Delegations for relations with third countries, which means that sometimes we travel outside the EU to attend meetings.
