Article about the Forum of Fora in European Parliament Magazine

European Parliament Magazine published an article about the networking cocktail of the three Fora. These forums give parliamentarians the chance to meet, and debate with, experts in their field. Forum events are designed to illuminate arguments, test solutions, and help MEPs reach the right decisions. Representatives from the European Commission and the permanent representations are also regular participants in these events. Key players in the sectors concerned provide the resources and organisation, but the forums do not take policy positions or lobby for any particular outcomes.
