Friday, June 2, 10:00: ‘European Breakfast’ with the president of the Civil Liberties Committee, Juan Fernando López Aguilar | Press

The meeting will focus on the agenda of the parliamentary commission for the second half of this IX legislature, as well as the regulation regarding crisis situations and force majeure in the field of migration and asylum, of which Juan Fernando López Aguilar is speaker.

The Civil Liberties Committee is in charge of most of the legislation and the democratic supervision of the policies that allow the European Union to offer its citizens an area of ​​freedom, security and justice (article 3 of the TEU). By doing so, it ensures the full respect of the Charter of Fundamental Rights in the EU territory in conjunction with the European Convention on Human Rights and the strengthening of European citizenship.
