The EPP managed to get one of its MEPs, Greek Manolis Kefalogiannis, to be the rapporteur on the establishment of the Just Transition Fund. It will not be an easy task to steer such a report through the agitated waters of a more fragmented EP.
Is 2020 going to be a pivotal year in EU-US relations? Even if many of the Democratic candidates promise a clean break with Trump’s approach, do not expect all policy disagreements between the two continental powers to fade away too easily.
The stakes can hardly be higher, as EU leaders are meeting today for a negotiating marathon to decide on the next MFF. We created precise mappings of the positions of the different national groups on the key topics on the budgetary agenda.
How are coalitions built on specific topics and who wins? At such a pivotal moment for EU stakeholders, we are providing our public with a detailed analysis of the trends observed during the first 6 months of the new EP term and what these mean for how future EU legislation is going to be shaped.
This report shows which MEPs have been the most influential towards the end of the parliamentary term. The study also reveals which national groups have been punching above/below their weight when it comes to influencing European policies through the EP.
One year after the publication of our report on the influence of the Members of the European Parliament, we updated our findings to take into account the developments occurred over the last year. This assessment shows which MEPs have been the most influential over the current term.
How will the EU institutions look like after the 2019 reshuffle? VoteWatch Europe has surveyed more than 1.000 members of the broader ‘EU bubble’ for their views regarding the reallocation of top EU positions in 2019. This report shows the full results of our research.
The European Parliament has a rather unusual mechanism that is known by very few people and which allows the MEPs to effectively change the way they voted after a decision has been made This report reveals which MEPs have ‘corrected’ their votes and why this may have happened.
Our analysis is based on the same dataset that indicated that the UK was increasingly outvoted in the Council in recent years, thus predicting the centrifugal policy orientation of the British government. Now, we are using the same type of analysis to predict what will happen next.
