EU Member States have come under continuing external threats, which pose serious risks for democratic societies. Parliament’s new Special Committee on Foreign Interference in all Democratic Processes in the EU, including Disinformation, makes part of the Union’s toolbox to counter these attacks, states Chair Raphaël Glucksmann in the opening article of this issue of the Policy Departments’ Monthly Highlights. He adds that new rules have to be set and national legislations must be harmonised.
Other issues featured in this month’s newsletter include the impact of teleworking on workers and society, education and youth in post-COVID Europe, interinstitutional relations in the treatment of petitions, and EU trust funds. Forthcoming publications and events are also announced.
