1. Introduction

In line with the principle of transparency, the European Parliament makes a wide range of materials available to citizens: legal resources, documents, studies, but also multimedia material, infographics, video recordings, and more to document and promote its activities, in particular the legislative one.

In 2021, on the occasion of Europe Day which is celebrated on 9 May, the EP promoted a series of online activities aimed at making the EU and its institutions better known. Find out more on the dedicated page: Europe Day 2021.

This module provides a guide to the tools and sources made available by the European Parliament to deepen the knowledge of the decision-making mechanisms of the European Union.

The place to start is the EP website where you can find information such as political news and the concrete functioning of the institution.
