What was your EU topic of the year? In all probability we dealt with it. Check out the Ask EP review of 2014.
Citizens recurrently turn to the Parliament with comments on summer time. Some citizens are in favour of this arrangement since they look forward to enjoying all sorts of evening leisure activities because of the natural light available. Others call on the Parliament to abolish summer-time arrangements since they do not see any advantages.
The EU provisions regarding access to social assistance and social security benefits are recurrently discussed in some Member States and at the EU level.
Travelling in Europe’s border-free Schengen area without a visa is one of the most concrete results for citizens, especially for young and mobile citizens. It is important for connecting people but it also requires trust that Member States properly secure their external borders and implement required measures.
Citizens write to the European Parliament to express their concerns about the death penalty still being applied in countries around the world. Some enquire about the position of the Parliament on the death penalty; others call on the EU to intervene in individual cases.
