This week’s EU27 Bulletin reflects on criticisms of the gender and political balance of the new European Commission which has been directed by some political groups in the European Parliament. The Bulletin also examines the latest Commission nominee put forward by Romania.

The IIEA’s EU27 Bulletin brings you the key developments from across the EU’s institutions on a weekly basis and looks at the forthcoming week’s major agenda items.

Our weekly bulletin includes:

  • Analysis of ongoing institutional change;
  • Updates and analysis of institutional legislative proposals;
  • Examination of major policy speeches by EU leaders and senior institution officials; and
  • Updates on key decisions adopted by the EU.

This week’s EU27 Bulletin reflects on the latest developments in the hearings process for the new Commission, as the new candidates from France, Hungary and Romania faced scrutiny from MEPs. It also considers President-elect von der Leyen’s decision to rename a number of key portfolios and the decision of the UK not to appoint a Commissioner.

The Bulletin also covers the expansion of the PESCO framework and the ambitious new energy lending policy of the EIB in the context of the EU’s climate objectives.
