Briefing Note on the Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on the Citizens’ Initiative

This briefing note follows the structure of the programme of the conference on 17 March 20011 on citizens’ initiatives as follows:

  • The first section, “How far does the right of citizens’ initiative go?”, examines the nature of the citizens’ initiatives vis-à-vis direct and indirect democracy;
  • The second section, “What improvements were brought about by the European Parliament during the legislative process?” highlights the achievements met by the Parliament in making the regulation more user-friendly and effective, but also the points which the Parliament did not succeed to modify;
  • The sub-points under part III, “What are the procedures and requirements to be met by organisers?”, are suggestions for the four working groups which will meet in parallel session.
