Presentation abstract

Supported by a strong political will, the European Parliament Directorate for the Media in general and the Web Communication Unit in particular do their best to provide news for the general public and social media animations in all 24 EU official languages. We are supported by the EP Information Offices in all Member States. We also provide direct access to everything the Members of the European Parliament publish online, in the language of their choice, via our EP Newshub (live online aggregator).
