Parliamentary Forum "EU Parliaments in global governance" - Brussels, 18 February 2014
17041 AFFICHE Parliamentary Forum EN A3_resized.jpg

Over the past decades governments have set up numerous international organisations and informal groupings. In many of these bodies the executives give important orientations with little or no parliamentary oversight. Global governance must not be left to governments and diplomats only, but must involve the citizens and their elected representatives. Parliaments should play a strong role in this process.

This is why the European Parliament Vice-Presidents responsible for relations with national Parliaments, Miguel Angel Martínez and Othmar Karas, organised a Parliamentary Forum on "EU Parliaments in global governance". The event took place on 18 February 2014 at the European Parliament premises in Brussels. It brought together Members of the national Parliaments of the EU Member States, MEPs and representatives of international organisations to debate the role of Parliamentarism in an increasingly interconnected world.
