European Parliament - Directorate General for Communication
The Directorate-General for Communication works to ensure that information is circulated to the public, the media and opinion leaders on the wide range of Parliament’s activities. Parliament has set up information offices in each EU Member State to provide information for the public on its operation and activities. The information offices act as intermediaries between Parliament and the public.
The Directorate-General for Communication makes extensive use of various means, activities and communications networks to help publicise Parliament’s activities. It assists and provides information to a wide range of people by developing various means of communication. Its main tasks are:
- ensuring that the media, the public and opinion leaders (associations, civil society bodies and local elected representatives) are aware of the role, operation and views of the European Parliament.
- providing a library and documentation service for MEPs, committees and other European Parliament bodies for their official parliamentary duties.
