The Week Ahead 19 – 25 June 2017 

Migration/ High-level conference. EP President Tajani, Commission President Juncker and EU foreign policy chief Mogherini will open a conference of more than 500 participants working on migration at the political level and on the ground, to discuss asylum and migration management, stability in third countries and the EU’s internal security. This comes ahead of the 22-23 June European Council that will also address migration policy. (Wednesday)


EU Trade defence tools. A revamp of EU anti-dumping measures, designed to protect EU jobs and business from unfair external competition, will be voted on by the International Trade Committee. The measures target countries where there are ‘substantial market distortions’, regardless of whether they have been granted market-economy status or not. (Tuesday)


Turkey. Foreign Affairs MEPs will evaluate Turkey’s progress on EU-related reforms in 2016. They will decide whether to recommend suspending the accession talks, if Turkey intends to change the constitution in a way that erodes the democratic checks and balances. (Tuesday)


Trade measures for Ukraine. The International Trade Committee will vote on further trade concessions to Kiev to foster economic and political recovery. (Tuesday)


EU-Cuba. A first-ever cooperation deal between the EU and Cuba will be up for a vote in the Foreign Affairs Committee. It provides for enhanced political dialogue and bilateral cooperation. The deal needs EP consent to enter into force. (Tuesday)


Hearing of Commissioner-Designate for the Digital Economy and Society. Bulgarian Commissioner-designate Mariya Gabriel, nominated by the Commission President to take over the responsibility for the Digital Economy and Society portfolio, will be quizzed by MEPs across several committees to assess her skills. Parliament will vote in July whether to approve her taking office or not. (Tuesday)


Employment/Europass. The Employment and Culture Committees will vote to modernise the Europass, an EU online network for presenting skills and qualifications in CVs. New web tools will allow jobseekers to add more information in different formats, not just as written documents, and to self-assess their skills. (Wednesday)


ACP-EU. The 33rd plenary session of the ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly, gathering members from African, Caribbean and Pacific parliaments and MEPs, will take place in St. Julian’s, Malta. Risk of severe famine, impunity for crimes against humanity, migration, the situation in the Sahel-Saharan region and in Burundi are among the issues to be addressed. (Monday to Wednesday)


President's diary. EP President Antonio Tajani will meet UN Special Representative for International Migration Louise Arbour, on Wednesday. On Thursday, he will address the European Council, followed by a press conference.
