Masterclass: Researching the EU

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

How do you find out how your national politicians act in Brussels and hold them accountable for it? How did your national MEPs vote? How did your government act in the council? And how do you follow a national story that leads to the EU? In this masterclass, Sigrid Melchior will explain how the EU system works and show you how to research the EU institutions.
Program for the day:
10-11 What is the EU really?
11-12 EU legislation, finding sources
12-13 What, who, where, when? Journalistic tools
13-14 Lunch
14-15 Access to documents, voting data
15-16 Cross-border, journalist cooperations

Do you have a specific problem concerning your research in EU institutions? Write Sigrid Melchior before the masterclass, and she may help you find the answer during the day.
