What would you ask Emily O’Reilly? As European Ombudsman, she deals with issues of maladministration, transparency, whistle blowing, and improper lobbying. She’s tasked with investigating complaints from citizens about poor administration by EU institutions or other EU bodies.
As part of our “Ask” series, Debating Europe is hosting a series of debates with her. Previously, we’ve co-hosted a live #AskJuncker event with Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission (we did the same thing with Juncker back in 2016). Before that, we co-hosted something very similar with Juncker’s predecessor, José Manuel Barroso.
We also did an “Ask the President” series of interviews with former EU Council President Herman Van Rompuy in 2011 (and again in 2013). And, ahead of the 2014 European Parliament elections, we also ran “Ask the Candidates” interviews with the various candidates for EU Commission President.
The #Ask O’Reilly series will look at transparency and trade negotiations, lobbying, and the so-called “revolving door” between business and politics.
