The Joint Committee on European Union Affairs

The European Affairs Committee plays a key role in informing debate on the European Union in Ireland by fully considering important EU developments and initiatives affecting Ireland, ensuring that EU legislation and proposals are properly scrutinised and in holding the Government to account in Ireland’s relations with Europe.

The Committee also regularly engages with EU institutions to monitor and influence the political and strategic direction of the Union as a whole. View Committee's Orders of Reference and current Work Programme 2014  .
