Rutte i närbild   Ledamöter debatterade det nederländska ordförandeskapets prioriteringar med premiärminister Mark Rutte och kommissionsordförande Jean-Claude Juncker den 20 januari. Ordförandeskapets fokus är bland annat tillväxt och att knyta an till det civila samhället.

Årets första sex månader har varit händelserikt. Nederländerna tog över ordförandeskapet i ministerrådet i januari. Den 8 mars uppmärksammade Europaparlamentet Internationella kvinnodagen genom att fokusera på kvinnliga flyktingars situation. I slutet av mars drabbades Bryssel av ett terrorattentat som kostade 32 människor livet. I maj samlades nästan 8 000 unga i Strasbourg för att diskutera europeiska nyckelfrågor. I juni debatterade ledamöter resultatet av den brittiska EU-folkomröstningen. (Läs mer: Sex månader med Europaparlamentet i bilder )
