Whistle-blowers who want to report secret business deals, like price-fixing, can now use an anonymous tool to inform the EU competition authorities.

Political scientist and lecturer Ingo Espenschied is to visit Ireland's Europe Direct Information Centres where he will give a multi-media talk on: “60 years since the Treaty of Rome - 60 years of Europe” covering the convoluted history of Europe's last six decades and looking ahead to the future of Europe. The talk will highlight the significance of the Treaty of Rome as one of the foundation stones that led to the formation of the European Union.
