Missions


A committee can decide to organise missions to a member state, a country outside of the EU or to international conferences. Missions are undertaken in the exercise of the powers conferred on the committee and are composed of a limited numbers of members of the committee. Committees may also send, for no more than three days, a three-member delegation to agencies for which they are principally responsible. On this page you will find all the available information relating to specific missions.
