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.

01-02-2018 - LIBE - EMPL - PETI Joint Hearing on “Citizens’ rights after Brexit”, 1.2.18

LIBE EMPL PETI 07-02-2018 - 10:36
Brexit

The situation and rights of EU citizens in the UK and UK citizens in the Member States of the Union post Brexit is one of the most important issues in the Brexit negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Commission.

The European Parliament has called for the withdrawal agreement to incorporate the full set of rights citizens currently enjoy and to ensure reciprocity, equity, symmetry and non-discrimination for EU citizens in the United Kingdom and UK citizens in the European Union.
On 1 February 2018 the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs, the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs and the Committee on Petitions will hold a public hearing to take stock of the situation on citizens' rights after the announcement in December 2017 that sufficient progress has been achieved in the negotiations for the withdrawal agreement.
