The European Parliament 2019-2024: Inline Policy's guide for the tech sector
  • The new European Parliament is different to the previous term, with a more fragmented power balance between the main political groups. This makes the liberal Renew Europe and the Green/EFA group kingmakers for the conservative EPP and socialist S&D groups who have lost their combined absolute majority.
  • Further changes will come once the United Kingdom leaves the EU and seats are reallocated among Member States, with the groups’ seat numbers altered as a result.
  • The policy areas that the new European Parliament will work on will be wide-ranging and affect the digital economy including content regulation, artificial intelligence, online platforms and a host of other areas.

If you would like to discuss our briefing, how these policy areas will affect your business and how to navigate the European Parliament, please get in touch with the Inline Policy Brussels team.
