MEPs Lobby Meetings


 

 

 

 

 

 

How many MEPs Want to Disclose their Meetings?

In a legal opinion I wrote for the Greens | European Free Alliance in the European Parliament, I analyzed to what extent additional transparency measures in the currently debated inter-institutional agreement on the lobby register might affect the free mandate of MEPs.

In essence, “the freedom of the mandate” is not an absolute freedom, and lobby transparency obligations actually reinforce much more this mandate than they impair it. A summary of my findings is available here.
