    Whats About

    Join the L&H for this week's house debate "This House Has No Faith in the Von Der Leyen Commission" at 6.30pm in the Fitzgerald Chamber. As always, free pizza after. The Covid-19 Pandemic, Russian invasion of Ukraine and Israel-Palestine Conflict have all brought attention to the role of the EU Commission as the executive arm of the EU under the leadership of President Ursula von der Leyen. There remains a wide spectrum of opinion over the actions and efforts of the European Commission since President Von der Leyen took office in December 2019. Some view the EU response to recent events as an example of the success of the EU Commission while others see it as an example of its failure. In addition there is also disagreement over the powers and responsibilities of the Commission itself and how it affects the EU’s balance between state sovereignty and cohesive action. #UCDDebate #debate #debatingsociety #debating #ucd#ucdlnh #lnh #lnh169 #ucdsocieties #eu #europe#vonderleyen #eucommission #euparliament #eucouncil#politics #mep #elections
