Stay informed


Does the European Parliament seem very far from where you live? Is there something more you would like to know about its work? This section offers you several paths you can take to get a better picture of what is going on in the EU’s directly elected body.


European Parliament is in your country

The information offices are in all member states to answer your questions about EU policies. They also work closely with various organisations to improve public knowledge of the Parliament and its work. Find out more about their activities and get in touch.


Social Media

Of course, you don’t have to leave your desk or living room to talk to us. We are on all major social media platforms and we would love to hear from you. Come and join us!


Looking for documents or data?

Our Register provides direct access to most Parliament’s documents, and some others are available on request, no justification needed. Find out all you wish to know.

Research and analysis

The European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS) is Parliament’s in-house think tank. It provides independent and objective analysis on topical issues that is also available to the general public.

Factsheets on the European Union

If you are searching for a great overview of EU’s policies and the Parliament’s role in them, this is the place to start. The Factsheets are concise yet they give you the full picture and are regularly updated.
