After the major changes in 2014 to the Brussels activist landscape – with the European Parliament elections in May and the new European Commission that took office towards the end of the year – EDRi’s booklet “Activist Guide to the Brussels Maze” has been updated. The version 2.0 is now available on our website.
The purpose of this booklet is to provide activists with an insight into where EU legislative and non-legislative proposals come from, and what can be achieved at each stage of the legislative process. As the lifetime of some EU proposals can be very long, it is important to know where to target any activity at any given moment. Every institution is very powerful and influential at certain moments and very much a spectator at other moments. We hope that this guide will help serve as a map of the Brussels maze.
