This week we're taking a look back at some of the more defining moments of the year so far. It's now been 12 months since the UK voted to leave the EU. Brexit negotiations have only just begun, getting underway with a British prime minister who now leads a minority government, having called snap elections and lost a number of seats. We travelled to the UK just ahead of the last parliamentary polls and spoke to Conservative MEP Charles Tannock.
As the EU marked the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, the founding text of the EU, we interviewed some of the descendents of the men who signed that treaty.
And we also looked at the situation of migrants in the EU: in Italy, where some of them work for free carrying out community services; and in Bulgaria, where the EU border force Frontex is organising a new force to prevent illegal immigration.
