Hearings

SEE ALL

A committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues. On this page you will find all the available information relating to committee hearings, including programmes and contributions from speakers.

On 28 September the Committee on Constitutional Affairs will hold a public hearing on 'Origins and development of sub-groups of Member States within the EU and its impact in the integration process'. The Committee will hear from three experts on this subject.

The three invited experts are Charles de Marcilly from Robert Schuman Foundation, Anna-Lena Kirch from the German Council on Foreign Relations and Professor Jacques Ziller from the University of Pavia. They will focus on the paradoxes of furthering integration by the sub-groups of Member States, on specific experience with Nordic-Baltic and Visegrad cooperation as well on the legal framework set out by the EU constitutional framework for such groups.
