PETI - Petitions

The debate allowed to discuss common experiences, share best practices, foster mutual learning, and raise awareness of the common challenges related to the right of the citizen to petition the national and European Parliaments.

The European Parliament Legal Affairs Committee (JURI) and Petition Committee (PETI) co-organised with the Legislative Dialogue Unit of the Directorate for National Parliaments an ICM on the Empowering Parliaments and enforcing citizen's rights in the implementation and application of Union law.

The European Parliament's Committee on Petitions (PETI) invited national Parliaments to the hearing on the Right to petition. The aim of this hearing was to discuss the existing procedure according to which petitions are treated in the European Parliament.
