What does the Netherlands want with Europe? And how should we position ourselves in Brussels?
This time a special episode about the State of the Union. The annual debate in the House of Representatives where MPs and MEPs debate Dutch priorities in Europe. About the recovery fund, geopolitical challenges, rule of law developments and how best to achieve business within the EU.
Annette and Mathieu receive Kati Piri, Europe spokesperson for the PvdA in the House of Representatives and former MEP, and Sophie in ‘t Veld, D66 delegation leader in the European Parliament.
And of course attention to the Germany with our Wahlbeobachter Derk Marseille. How do Germans view strategic autonomy?
