The impact of the health crisis on the functioning of Parliaments in Europe

18/12/2020 Confronted by the first wave of epidemics that swept across Europe in March 2020, parliaments were forced to respond quickly. The relation with time that parliaments have developed in this regard is complex and largely conditioned by the urgency of the situation. This study aims to report on the impact of the pandemic on the leading democratic institution in our countries - the Parliament. The Robert Schuman Foundation, in partnership with this university network, has published a series of contributions on the developments in the functioning of the parliaments of twelve states European countries during this particular year as well as the European Parliament.

  • Poland: new President of the Supreme Court
    Polish President Andrzej Duda appointed Judge Malgorzata Manowska to head the Supreme Court on 25 May. The appointment has been strongly criticised by legal experts and the opposition because Ms Manowska, a former deputy justice minister, is close to the ruling Law and Justice Party. Poland has already been threatened with sanctions by the European Union for its attempts by the government to take control of the Supreme Court.
  • European Economic Area Council meeting
    On 25 May, the members of the European Economic Area (EEA) Council discussed the functioning of the EEA and the consequences of Covid-19 for the internal market. They reiterated their commitment to continue the energy transition and the fight against pollution, as well as their desire to reduce social disparities and improve working conditions.

  • Adoption of support measures for the air and rail sectors
