Background

The European Parliament

The only directly elected body of the EU Institutions, the European Parliament (EP) is made up of 751 Members (MEPs) from 28 countries, most of whom work in 7 Political Groups. These MEPs are important decision makers for shaping EU policy especially following the Lisbon Treaty and the Parliament’s role as co-legislator.

This is why it is central for FACE to maintain an excellent network and regular contact with the Parliament, its Members and officials by updating them about hunting-related dossiers, promoting hunters’ interests and ensuring discussions on ongoing work are well informed. FACE simultaneously reports activities and developments back to FACE Members and thereby, Europe’s 7 million hunters can be kept informed of relevant EU developments.
