TALKING EUROPE

Politicians, activists and researchers debate the issues facing the EU and a 'guest of the week' offers their insight in a long-format interview that gets to the heart of the matter. Saturday at 12.10 pm.

Latest update : 2014-05-21

Advertising the EU Parliament: Mission impossible?

At the last EU elections in 2009, voter turnout dropped to an all-time low when only 43% of registered voters cast their votes. In a bid to try to engage with citizens, the European Parliament recently launched a Europe-wide information campaign called "Act, React, Impact". The Parliament has tried to insist on the crucial role it plays in the lives of EU citizens. But will it make a difference this time around at the polls? Or is advertising the EU Parliament mission impossible?
