“Europeans have discovered that they are a more serious force than they previously thought”, the European Council on Foreign Relations argues in the face of the war in Ukraine. And yet, the combined crises of security, energy and finances also emphasizes different agendas and priorities, shifting power dynamics within the EU, as well as the open question of which role the EU might take within a changing world order.
We would like to discuss these issues with Rainer Wieland. Rainer Wieland has been member of the European Parliament (EP) since 1997 and its Vice President for Infrastructure and Budget since 2009. In the three sessions of this series, he will discuss the role and function of the EP, the EU’s dealing with current crises and future scenarios of the shape and relevance of the EU.
Each session will be opened with input from scientists and students, followed by a reply by Rainer Wieland. Half of the session’s time will be reserved for a discussion with students and staff members joining so to give you the possibility to introduce your positions and questions.
In the first part of our series on “The Future EU”, we will be devoted to gauging the role of the European Parliament in the decision-making process of the EU. The questions discussed will include: The parliament is co-legislator spread over three workplaces, using 24 official languages. How is it to work in the European Parliament? How does the EP act as co-legislator next to the Commission? How do Members of Parliament keep contact with citizens? Is there a trade-off between democratic legitimacy and efficiency? Which prospects of a reform do the discussants see?
