Today is World Humanitarian Day. The number of people in need has more than doubled since 2004, making it necessary to find new ways to tackle humanitarian crises. Read more about how Parliament is helping → http://epfacebook.eu/p8H5.

Did you know the Parliament is investigating how multinationals pay taxes and how the car industry measures emissions?

In addition to approving new laws, scrutiny is also an important part of what members do. Find out how it works here http://epgplus.eu/B7

The only directly-elected EU body. Members of the Parliament represent you, the citizen.
Introduction

The European Parliament is the only directly-elected EU body. Members of the Parliament represent more than 500 million citizens of Europe, debate European issues which matter to them, vote European laws to make their lives better and make the European Union accountable to them.

The European Parliament is co-legislator for most of Europe's laws. It is a place with open doors where people from 28 member states come together to disagree, a place where political ideas and ideals meet, sometimes to clash, sometimes to be reconciled. Alliances are formed, deals are struck, compromises made, in other words, it's the usual, sometimes glorious, sometimes inglorious, business of democratic politics.

Read the EP news in 24 languages, watch the debates live, follow us online and say your word.

If you have questions about the European Parliament our Citizens' enquiry service or Europe Direct will be happy to help you.

A bit more about the Parliament?

Once elected, Members organise along political lines and not by nationality. Currently there are seven political groups. MEPs are divided up among a number of specialised standing committees to prepare the preparatory work for Parliament’s plenary sittings and a number of delegations to develop Parliament’s international contacts. The president of the European Parliament, elected for a renewable term of two and a half years and assisted by 14 vice-presidents, oversees all the work of the Parliament.

Our parliamentary committees

#Foreign Affairs (#HumanRights and  #Security and Defence) #Development, International #Trade, #Budgets, Budgetary Control, #Economic and Monetary Affairs, #Employment and Social Affairs, #Environment, #PublicHealth and #Food Safety, #Industry, #Research and #Energy, Internal Market and #Consumer Protection, #Transport and #Tourism, Regional Development,  #Agriculture and Rural Development,  #Fisheries, #Culture and #Education, #Legal Affairs, Civil Liberties, #Justice and #HomeAffairs, Constitutional Affairs, #Women's Rights and #Gender Equality, Petitions and Organised crime, #corruption and money laundering (special committee)

Our moderation policy

We are very happy to see all political views represented on this page - this reflects the very nature of a Parliament, which is about diversity of opinion. What we cannot accept are comments which are either offensive in themselves or clearly offensive to other users. We would like to ask you, therefore, to avoid obscenity and other insulting language, to show respect for fellow page users and the fundamental principles we all share (you know what we mean: no racism, xenophobia, call to violence, discrimination based on religion, ethnic origin, gender...). We also encourage you to post comments that stick to the subject in discussion.
