Join us in our video series and radio-show where we engage with a variety of EU policy issues! These discussions range from problems of participation to questions of transparency and the involvement of lobbies.

Latest from Brussels Insider:

In this third and final episode of The Brussels Insider series, we explore the topic of transparency in the European Union.

The European Union is often seen as a far away institution built on back-handed agreements and secret negotiations with nobody to hold the process or people accountable.

Is this really the truth?

Is the EU as opaque as some actors would have us believe, or is there more to the story?

We spoke with MEP Colm Markey and Parliamentary Assistant Una Clarke, both of whom have first hand experience with the EU’s transparency measures. We also got the point of view of Vitor Teixiera – a Senior Policy Officer at Transparency International EU – an organisation whose mission is to prevent corruption and promote integrity, transparency and accountability in EU institutions, policies and legislation.
