VoteWatch Europe is a small, independent not-for-profit organisation. Our goal is to promote better insight into EU politics by making information on the decision-making process of the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers available in a user-friendly, searchable format.
We rely on grants, paid services and donations to maintain and improve our core activities. You can help us by making a donation, however small.
We accept donations via PayPal/credit card (click below).
The European Parliament has a rather unusual mechanism that is known by very few people and which allows the MEPs to effectively change the way they voted after a decision has been made This report reveals which MEPs have ‘corrected’ their votes and why this may have happened.
In politics, strength is in numbers and in the European Parliament this is even more the case. So far, the European parliamentary groups have been impressively cohesive, but this may all change after the European elections.
One year after the publication of our report on the influence of the Members of the European Parliament, we updated our findings to take into account the developments occurred over the last year. This assessment shows which MEPs have been the most influential over the current term.
How will the EU institutions look like after the 2019 reshuffle? VoteWatch Europe has surveyed more than 1.000 members of the broader ‘EU bubble’ for their views regarding the reallocation of top EU positions in 2019. This report shows the full results of our research.
Our analysis is based on the same dataset that indicated that the UK was increasingly outvoted in the Council in recent years, thus predicting the centrifugal policy orientation of the British government. Now, we are using the same type of analysis to predict what will happen next.
The UK is the most outvoted Member State in the EU Council. However, it has supported more than 97% of the EU laws adopted in the last 12 years, a new report published by VoteWatch Europe shows.
The tensions in the Middle East keep escalating. While the US is very active, the EU seems to lack the ability to have a coherent position on these developments. Why? This report shows how key European political actors have different preferences for their coalition partners in the Middle East.
