State of the European Union debate

The State of the European Union debate takes place in the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

In this yearly exercise, Members of the European Parliament scrutinise the work of the European Commission and make sure key concerns of Europeans are addressed.

Combating poverty, tackling the climate crisis and rebuilding the EU economy are some of the issues that Parliament members will address during the 2021 edition of the State of the European Union debate. They will question European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and make sure that the European Commission is doing enough and setting the right priorities.
