The incoming members of the European Parliament have recently elected their political group leaders, the members of the Bureau and the committee chairs, all of whom have a considerable -albeit different- power in the Parliament's decision-making.
This panel debate aims to analyse the composition of the new Parliament and how it may affect the parliamentary work and EU policy making in the coming years. It will look into the main policy priorities of the next EP and the institutional reforms that could contribute to enhance its performance.
Launch of the final report of the CEPS High-Level Group on Institutional Reform.
The debate on EU institutional reform is heating up in the run-up to the EP elections and the start of a new Commission, with some proposals calling for a treaty change. The report of the CEPS High-level Group focuses on those institutional reforms that could be taken within the framework of the current treaties to build a more responsive and accountable Union after the elections.
