European ‘Question Time’ in City Council chamber

05/02/14

Aberdeen citizens are being invited to join in a special debate later this month on the facts behind the European Union headlines.

Per Johansson from the European Parliament Information Office will chair a panel of local academics, who will speak on a range of issues including migration and free movement of people, international trade and human rights. A question-and-answer session will follow the debate and refreshments will be provided.

The event will be held in the Council Chamber in the Town House, Broad Street, Aberdeen, on 19 February, 6.30–7.30pm and has been organised by Europe Direct, which provides information about EU policies, programmes and institutions, internet access to EU websites, EU resources for teachers, copies of publications, brochures and guides to take away, information on travelling in the EU, and EU facts and figures.

The debate, entitled 'European Parliament Elections 2014 – Why Vote?', has been organised in advance of the poll in May, when voters get the chance to choose their Members of the European Parliament, and aims to highlight how the EU affects people in their daily lives.
