Brussels Bulletin and the CWP

The Brussels Bulletin is a fortnightly publication produced by the Scottish Parliament's Officer in Brussels.  The latest edition of the Brussels Bulletin can be viewed via the following link:

The Brussels Bulletin provides intelligence on the key EU policy themes which are likely to dominate the European policy agenda as it relates to devolved matters over the next year. The key policy areas are:

  • Europe 2020
  • Cohesion Policy
  • The Stockholm (Justice) Programme
  • Energy & Climate Change
  • Agriculture and Fisheries
  • Multi-Annual Financial Framework

The key policy themes were agreed by the European and External Relations Committee following consultation with other Scottish Parliament committees on the European Commission Work Programme (CWP).

Special Editions of the Brussels Bulletin

At its meeting on 9 September 2008 the Committee agreed to the introduction of quarterly special edition Brussels Bulletins to focus on one of the key policy themes.
