Every five years citizens of the European Union decide who will be the new Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). At this important moment for European Parliament election, we invite to join us for a new session of Lunch & Learn – Election series, focusing on the European People’s Party (EPP) campaign. We are glad to welcome Roland Freudenstein, Head of Research and the Deputy Director of the Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies, the political foundation and official think tank of the EPP.
Roland Freudenstein will give an overview of 2014’s election dynamics and strategies, and a deep understanding of the EPP campaign strategy.
