Committee week at the European Parliament in Brussels a a very busy one for ALDE MEPs as we host several interesting seminars and hearings. Check out our priorities below:


The Culture and Education Committee will discuss, with the Commission, contingency measures to ensure that people who are abroad on an Erasmus+ funded activity will not have their mobility period interrupted in the event of a no-deal Brexit. They will also vote on the budget and new priorities for the 2021–2027 European Solidarity Corps programme.

The set-up of a new Justice, Rights and Values Fund is up for a vote by the Civil Liberties and Legal Affairs committees. It funds actions aiming to promote rule of law and judicial cooperation, as well as facilitating access to justice for everybody.
