Hansard Society Scholars study trip to Edinburgh
On 15 March, we were happy to welcome the Hansard Society scholars to our office for a series of talks on Scotland's history, economy, politics and relationship with the EU. We gave a presentation on the structure of the European Parliament, its role as the democratically-elected institution of the EU and the activities of the Scottish MEPs. The presentation was followed by a Q&A session, during which the scholars heard about the role of the Presidents of the EU institutions and the Parliament's legislative powers in light of current events.
During their trip, the scholars also went to the Scottish Parliament to meet with MSPs and observe First Minister’s Questions.
