Before the end of 2021, Parliament is to adopt a report on the application so far, of Regulation No. 1141/2014 on the statute and funding of European political parties and European political foundations. AFCO is the lead committee and the hearing is intended to facilitate the committee’s analysis of how the regulation is being applied and which improvements could be made.

European political parties and political foundations can significantly enhance the European dimension in the political debate among citizens, thereby strengthening the democratic legitimacy of the Union. Regulation No 1141/2014, gives political parties and foundations that meet several conditions the opportunity to become European legal entities and consequently, to have access to funding from the EU budget.In order to better understand how the said regulation has been applied so far and to be in a better position to propose amendments to it, if necessary, AFCO invited four academic experts to share their views, via video-link, with committee members. These are:

  • Prof. Daniela Piccio, (University of Torino)
  • Prof. Tori Thorlakson, (University of Alberta)
  • Prof. Steven Van Hecke, (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven)
  • Prof. Jan Wouters, (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven)

The public hearing will be webstreamed.
