Activities of the European Parliament in the First Half of 2000
The overview of the activities of the European Parliament has been compiled mainly on the basis of the information obtained from http://www.europarl.eu.int.
As an introduction, the compiler also presents some facts on the elections to the European Parliament in June 1999 and gives a summary of the sessions of the EP from January until summer vacation. The overview provides the reader with a good possibility to compare the topics of discussions in the EP and national parliaments and keep an eye on the common global policy of the European Union.
