The European Parliament and the Origins of Social, Environmental and Consumer Policies

Event to be held online on Tuesday 13 February from 13h-14h30 CET.

This event explores the key role played by the European Parliament in the establishment of the European Community’s social, environmental and consumer policies during the 1970s. Following an introduction by European Parliament Vice-President Martin Hojsík, three historians and political scientists will discuss the strategies used at the time by MEPs, groups, committees and the EP as a collective actor to promote social, environmental and consumer rights of citizens. Drawing on their soon to be published EPRS studies, the speakers assess and evaluate how Parliament sought to shape European Community policy-making in these three fields at a time when it did not have any legislative powers.

In addition, we also want to share with you the call for expression of interest. With this call, we aim to activate the Research Network following a successful first online event, and facilitate bottom-up initiatives from its members to present (ongoing) work by means of an online seminar. Please find the full call attached.

We are looking forward to hearing from you !

Kind regards,

Wolfram Kaiser and the EPHS team
