Activist guide to the Brussels maze 2.0

Published: 23.02.2015

The purpose of this booklet is to provide activists with an insight into where EU legislative and non-legislative proposals come from, what can be achieved at each stage of the administrative process. As the lifetime of any EU Proposal of any description is 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. (The previous edition of the booklet is available here.)
