Welcome to the European Parliament Office in Washington DC

 .
 .

This is the website of the European Parliament Liaison Office in Washington DC. Our presence here is intended to strengthen cooperation between the United States and the European Union and to provide information to the public in the United States. Americans and Europeans together constitute the leading force in the world economy and, over the last 70 years, we have cooperated closely to enhance the cause of peace, freedom and human rights. Together we also face contemporary challenges such as the need to increase economic growth while protecting our environment. This website is intended as a window on the European Parliament to all those in the United States who are concerned with developments as legislators, officials, civil society, business, trade unions, reporters and all those studying the history and institutions of the European Union at school - and anyone interested in transatlantic relations.
