transparency

Lobby meeting

Lobbying is not always a bad thing. Human rights activists, peace activists or oppressed minorities also need associations or groups to represent them in politics. Lobbying is part of it, but must not become backroom politics.
That is why our group has voluntarily committed itself to transparency. Under the following link you can follow up with which lobby groups or representatives I have met so far. However, there is one exception and that is activists who are politically persecuted and are not safe. In order to protect these people, such meetings are not listed publicly.

Office expenses

Each Member of the European Parliament receives a flat-rate monthly allowance of EUR 4,563 for office expenses. In the diagram you can see what my office has spent the money on in the first two quarters of 2020.
