How Brussels works
Deepen your expertise with POLITICO insiders
In light of the current situation, we have made all our workshops virtual.
The power dynamics between Council, Commission, Parliament and the national capitals proof to be the decisive factors for success and failure of policy response in this time of crisis. The EU’s institutions and their functioning are complex but indispensable to understand. Become an insider of how and where decisions are made, where the secret power centers lie and who to watch out for in our How-Brussels-works-crash course.
