At your service 

The European Parliament works for the benefit of all Europeans. Whichever way you want to get involved - whether by following developments, working with us or providing feedback - the Parliament is there for you.

Stay informed 

Does the European Parliament seem very far from where you live? Stay informed about what is happening in the Parliament through our information pages and document services. You can also contact our liaison office in your country, where everything is available in your own language.

Be heard 

Do you have something to say? Then make your voice heard. Petition the Parliament if you think that EU laws are being breached where you are or contact the European Ombudsman if you need a mediator. You can also call for new laws directly by launching a citizens’ initiative together with others.
