Inter-parliamentary committee meetings with national Parliaments
Interparliamentary committee meetings with national Parliaments
Responding to the different types of EU policies and their relevant decision-making process, interparliamentary meetings are proposed in different formats: Interparliamentary Committee meetings with national Parliaments, Joint Committee Meetings and Joint Parliamentary Meetings.
Interparliamentary Committee meetings with national Parliaments are proposed on the initiative of the individual parliamentary committees of the EP which invite national colleagues from their corresponding committees. These meetings are a continuation of existing practice and mainly cover the policy areas where the EU has legislative powers using the co-decision procedure. The aim of these meetings is to promote exchange of views between European and national parliamentarians with a view to influencing the legislative decisions of the EP. They are co-organised by the Legislative Dialogue Unit of the Directorate for Relations with National Parliaments and the EP committee concerned.
