ROLLING LEGISLATIVE AGENDA OF THE EUROPEAN UNIONBrussels Daily
Rolling Legislative Agenda of the European Union. Europe connects & Europe protects
For the first time at the beginning of a legislative term the European Council has presented a ‘Strategic Agenda for the Union in Times of Change’, outlining political guidelines in five thematic areas. On these five thematic areas and beyond the European Parliament had, during the past legislative term (2009-2014), developed and adopted numerous initiatives for European legislation, calling on the European Commission for legislative action with a view to addressing the political, economic and societal challenges the European Union is faced with. Some of these legislative requests have been taken up by the Commission and subsequently adopted as part of the European Union’s answers to the financial and economic crisis or together with the new Multiannual Financial Framework. A substantial number of legislative requests were, nevertheless, not addressed. Yet they remain fully valid in view of the European Council’s Strategic Agenda. The present comprehensive document assembles Parliament’s remaining legislative requests, structured according to the thematic blocks of the European Council’s Strategic Agenda and to their individual state of play.
