Possibility to attend the courses either online via Webex or in-person at our premises in Brussels.

EU decision-making processes are specific and quite

How do draft legislative acts see the light of day, how are they adopted and implemented? How do key EU Institutions function, what is the impact of Better Regulation and the COVID 19 crisis on EU governance? But most importantly how can I, as public affairs practitioner, get a practical understanding of these structures, powers and procedures to boost my influence at EU

If you are looking for a hands-on online workshop covering these topics, then enroll for ‘Guide to the EU Labyrinth’. We offer to two 2,5 hour interactive sessions, including a copy of the New Practical Guide to the EU Labyrinth (FR or EN version).
