PACO final conference in Brussels
The research network PACO, of which ARENA is one of seven partners, holds its final conference in Brussels on 31 August 2017.
The Jean Monnet Network ‘Interparliamentary Cooperation in the EU's external action – Parliamentary Scrutiny and Diplomacy in the EU and beyond’ (PACO) brings together three inter-related teaching and research areas: EU external relations, inter-parliamentary cooperation and parliamentary diplomacy.
The aim of this final PACO-conference is to understand parliamentary practices in general and parliamentary cooperation and diplomacy more specifically in the wider perspective of EU external relations. It brings together the main research findings of PACO on the involvement of parliaments in EU external relations, inter-parliamentary cooperation between the European Parliament and National Parliaments in the EU, as well as bilateral and multilateral parliamentary diplomacy between the EP and third countries and regions.
Representing ARENA, Christopher Lord will participate in the panel 'Parliamentary Contestation, Cooperation and Diplomacy in EU External Relations' and chair the panel 'Parliamentary Scrutiny, Cooperation and Diplomacy in Security Policies'.
Registration by August 24.
