The European Commission would like to know your opinion on its publications for citizens. These are publications of general interest to citizens, written for a broad audience, and not for specialists and stakeholders.
Building on your valuable feedback, we will assess the effectiveness of our publications for citizens and propose ways to improve them.
This survey is completely anonymous and will take 10 minutes of your time.
The European Commission Representation in Ireland
We also gather information and keep the Commission in Brussels informed of various political, social and economic developments in Ireland. As part of its listening function, the Representation conducts public consultations on various ideas that the Commission is developing. We organise ‘Citizens’ Dialogues’ to exchange views with the public on European issues. We want to ensure that citizens’ voices in Ireland are heard in Brussels.

The EU in your county
The EU has made a major contribution to Ireland’s economic and social development since we joined the Common Market in 1973.
At a local level too, the EU has made a real difference to people’s lives. Over the last 45 years, the EU has provided significant funding to a wide range of projects and initiatives all over Ireland. It is also important to remember that, in addition to large infrastructure projects, the EU has funded many local initiatives which are aimed at improving the day-to-day lives of people in small but important ways.
