Economy, jobs & the environment
We are addressing some very wide-ranging questions: from the future of the Economic and Monetary Union in the EU, the euro and financial stability to energy supply and security, climate policy, environmental protection and air quality.
Legal & home affairs
We are fighting for an EU where citizens enjoy their fundamental rights and where the rule of law is fully respected. This Working Group deals with major issues such as migration, civil liberties, gender equality and educational, constitutional and legal matters.
Budget, agriculture & regional funding
We are working for a budget with which Europe will become more competitive and future-oriented, promoting effective and efficient use of taxpayers’ money to bring the best results for EU money.
We are influencing the EU's foreign and security policy, leading EU efforts in securing the EU’s external borders, pushing for and actively working towards the creation of a European Defence Union and visa liberalisation. The Western Balkans are also a priority for us.
