Europa-Union parliamentary group German Bundestag

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The European Union Parliamentary Group of the German Bundestag ( EUD PG DB ) is a parliamentary group of the non-partisan Europa-Union Germany , which was founded on July 4, 2007.

Goals and work

The aim of the group is the Europeanization of the German Bundestag : European policy will increasingly determine domestic German specialist policy. That is why it is a great opportunity to accompany this process in a Europe-friendly manner through the European Union members in the specialist committees of the German Bundestag. The work of the Europa-Union parliamentary group takes the form of events and political initiatives. In 2010, the group organized a joint, non-partisan evaluation of the new possibilities for the German Bundestag to participate in the framework of the Lisbon Treaty, together with the Europa-Union parliamentary group European Parliament .


In the current electoral term of the German Bundestag , the board of directors consists of the chairman of the Manuel Sarrazin group (Bündnis 90 / Die Grünen) and the deputies Thomas Hacker (FDP), Josip Juratovic (SPD), Katrin Staffler (CSU) and Elisabeth Winkelmeier-Becker (CDU).
