European Parliament Needs Strong Development Committee To Deliver E.U. Policies

EurActiv: Sound development policies need a strong parliamentary committee
Matt Foster, director of strategy and program effectiveness for Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO)

“…It is absolutely essential that the upcoming European Parliament elections on the 22-25th of May deliver a group of strong [members of the European Parliament (MEPs)] who, through their involvement in the Development Committee, can deliver on the [European] Union’s development policy. … VSO will be keeping a close eye on who gets elected to the new European Parliament and expect them to take their responsibilities seriously for the future shape of the E.U.’s role in international development is very much in their hands” (5/20).
